Item 8.01 Other Events.

The Board of Directors of Curtiss-Wright Corporation (the "Company") voted on November 11, 2012 to adopt the principle of majority voting in director elections. The Board did so by amending its Corporate Governance Guidelines to provide that, in an election where the only nominees are those recommended by the Board, any nominee for director who receives a greater number of votes "withheld" from his or her election than votes "for" his or her election shall be deemed to have tendered his or her resignation to the Chairman of the Committee on Directors and Governance, which shall make recommendations to the Board on the response to the resignation. The Board will decide whether to accept the resignation based on such factors as the reasons, if known, why stockholders "withheld" or were requested to "withhold" votes from the director, the director's length of service and qualifications, the director's contributions to the Company, and the current mix of skills and attributes of the directors on the Board. The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such revised Corporate Governance Guidelines, a copy of which is available at the Company's website,, by following links to "Corporate Governance" and "Corporate Governance Guidelines".

A press release announcing the action by the Company's Board of Directors was issued on November 19, 2012, and is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
