Virtual Annual Meeting
We are pleased to announce that the Company will conduct its 2023 Annual Meeting on the above date and time solely by live audio webcast in lieu of an in-person meeting. Your Board believes this format will enhance and facilitate attendance by providing convenient access for all of our stockholders with access to the Internet. We have planned and designed the meeting to encourage stockholder participation, protect stockholder rights, and promote transparency.
We encourage participation
Stockholders of record owning Chevron common stock at the close of business on Monday, April 3, 2023, are entitled to participate in and vote at the Annual Meeting. To participate in the Annual Meeting, including to vote and ask questions, stockholders should go to the virtual annual meeting portal website, enter the 16-digit control number found on your proxy card, voting instruction form, or Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Materials, and follow the instructions on the website. If your voting instruction form or Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Materials does not indicate that you may vote those shares through the www.proxyvote.com website and it does not include a 16-digit control number, you should contact your bank, broker, or other nominee (preferably at least five days before the annual meeting) and obtain a “legal proxy” in order to be able to attend, participate in, or vote at the Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting will be opened for access beginning at 7:45 a.m. PDT on May 31, 2023. Proponents of the stockholder proposals included in this Proxy Statement will be given the option to prerecord or call in live through a dedicated line to ensure their ability to present their proposals.
We welcome questions from stockholders
Questions may be submitted in advance of the meeting at www.proxyvote.com or live during the meeting on the virtual annual meeting portal website. If we are not able to get to every question submitted, we will post a summary of the remaining questions and answers on the investor relations page of the Company’s website.
Technical difficulties and additional questions
If you have difficulty accessing the Annual Meeting, please call 844-976-0738 (toll free) or 303-562-9301 (international). Technicians will be available to assist you. Please submit any additional questions, comments, or suggestions by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone by calling 1-877-259-1501.
Subject to any different procedures included in the rules of the meeting that may be posted online on the date of the Annual Meeting, in the event of a technical malfunction or other situation that the Chair of the Meeting determines may affect the ability of the meeting to satisfy the requirements for a stockholder meeting to be held by means of remote communication under the Delaware General Corporation Law, or that otherwise makes it advisable to adjourn the meeting, the Annual Meeting will be adjourned, to reconvene at 8:30 a.m. PDT on the date specified above at the Company’s headquarters in San Ramon, California, which information will be displayed, if possible, on the meeting website during the time originally scheduled for the Annual Meeting, solely for the purpose of further adjourning the meeting to reconvene at a date, time, and physical or virtual location announced by the Chair of the Meeting. Under either of the foregoing circumstances, we will post information regarding the announcement on the investor relations page of the Company’s website.
