3.1    Right to Severance Benefits
(a)
Change-in-Control Severance Benefits. The Executive shall be entitled to receive from the Company Change-in-Control Severance Benefits, as described in Section 3.2 herein, if a Qualifying Termination of the Executive’s employment has occurred within six (6) months immediately prior to or twenty-four (24) months immediately following a Change in Control of the Company.
