The Participant shall not be terminated for Cause unless he has been given written notice by the Board of its intention to so terminate his employment (a "Preliminary Notice of Cause"), such notice [3] to state in detail the particular act or acts or failure or failures to act that constitute the grounds on which the proposed termination for Cause is based and [4] to be given within six months of the Board's learning of such acts or failures to act. The Participant shall have ten days after the date that the Preliminary Notice of Cause is given in which to cure such conduct, to the extent that such cure is possible. If the Participant fails to cure such conduct, the Participant shall be entitled to a hearing before the Board, and to be accompanied by his counsel, at which he shall be entitled to contest the Board's findings. Such hearing shall be held within 15 days of notice to the Company by the Participant, provided he requests such hearing within 30 days of the Preliminary Notice of Cause. If the Participant fails to request such hearing within the 30-day period specified in the preceding sentence, his employment shall be terminated for Cause effective upon the expiration of such period. If the Participant requests such hearing and, within ten days following such hearing, the Participant is furnished with a copy of a resolution, duly adopted by the affirmative vote of a majority of the members of the Board, finding that in the good-faith opinion of the Board, the Participant was guilty of conduct constituting Cause as specified in the Preliminary Notice of Cause, the Participant's employment shall be terminated for Cause upon receipt of such resolution. Any such resolution shall be accompanied by a certificate of the Secretary or another appropriate officer of the Company which shall state that such resolution was duly adopted by the affirmative vote of a majority of the members of the Board at a duly convened meeting called for such purpose.
