Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On March 16, 2020, Nikki R. Haley informed The Boeing Company (the “Company”) of her decision to resign from the Board of Directors (the "Board") effective immediately. Ambassador Haley served on the Finance and Audit Committees. She joined the Board on April 29, 2019.
A variety of approaches are currently under discussion among policymakers in the administration and Congress, as well as the private sector, to address the near-term liquidity needs of the aerospace, travel, and other sectors affected by the current COVID-19 crisis.  The Company is participating in those discussions and has informed the Board about the options currently being considered. Ambassador Haley informed the Company that, as a matter of philosophical principle, she does not believe that the Company should seek support from the Federal Government, and therefore decided to resign from the Board.

A copy of Ambassador Haley's letter of resignation is filed as Exhibit 17 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On March 19, 2020, the Board adopted an amendment to Article II, Section 1 of the Company’s By-Laws to decrease the number of directors from thirteen to twelve. A copy of the amended and restated By-Laws is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
