Tesla Inc. scheduled its annual shareholder meeting for 2:30 p.m. Pacific on June 6 in Mountain View, according to a filing Thursday. Shareholders will be asked to vote for three directors to serve three-year terms on the company's board, among other items on the agenda. The nominees for directors are Chief Executive Elon Musk, Robyn M. Denholm, and Stephen J. Jurvetson. Denholm, a former Juniper Networks Inc. executive who in January became chief operations officer of telecommunications company Telstra Corp., has been a Tesla board member since 2014. Jurvetson, a managing director at venture capital firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson, has been a board member since 2009. Shareholders will also be asked to vote on the company's executive compensation program, including awarding Musk a yearly salary based on minimum wage. Musk, who refuses that base salary, owned 22% of Tesla's shares as of December, plus options and other securities. Also on the table is a proposal to change the board of directors' structure to elect all seven members yearly. Tesla currently staggers the terms. The board opposes that proposal, saying the staggered terms allow directors to focus on the long term.
