(d)                     On January 8, 2014, Boise Cascade Company’s (the "Company") board of directors expanded the size of the Board of Directors from eight to nine directors and elected Ms. Karen E. Gowland to fill the newly created vacancy effective January 8, 2014.
Ms. Gowland was the senior vice president, general counsel and secretary of Boise Inc. from August 2010 until its acquisition by Packaging Corporation of America (“PCA”) in October 2013 and will continue as an employee of PCA until March 1, 2014. PCA is a leading manufacturer of a wide variety of packaging and paper products. From February 2008 to July 2010, she served as Boise Inc.’s vice president, general counsel and secretary. From October 2004 to February 2008, Ms. Gowland served as vice president, general counsel and secretary of the Company.

The Company had commercial relationships with Boise Inc. that amounted to approximately $128 million in 2013. Those involve log and chip purchases and sales of approximately $112 million and an outsourcing services agreement under which Boise Inc. provides the Company corporate services such as payroll, information technology, and accounting support for approximately $16 million. These commercial relationships continue in 2014. The Company’s board has determined that, following her termination from PCA, Ms. Gowland will become an independent director as defined by Section 303A.02 of the New York Stock Exchange Listed Company Manual.

Ms. Gowland received a B.S. in Accounting and a J.D. from the University of Idaho. She is a member of the board of directors of the University of Idaho Foundation.

As a non-employee director, Ms. Gowland will receive the same compensation paid to all non-employee directors of the Company.
