BOARD AND VOLUNTEERS
The Board shall conduct the business of the Company whose members shall be elected or re-elected each year by the Annual General Meeting.
The Board shall consist of not less than seven and not more than ten Members. The Board may, from time to time, co-opt additional Members to the Board within the maximum number, provided that all those Members co-opted as aforesaid shall be formally elected at the next Annual General Meeting.
Any member of the Committee who, during the year immediately preceding the Annual General Meeting, has not attended more than 50 per cent of the meetings of the Committee convened during such year shall automatically retire and not be eligible for re-election for the ensuing year.
All Members standing for election or re-election to the Board at the Annual General Meeting shall be named in the Notice of this meeting.
The Board shall elect a Chairman from amongst its own number. The person so elected shall be the Chairman of the Board and shall be removable only by a vote of not less than three-fourths of the Board present at a special meeting called for that purpose. The Board may also elect a Vice-Chairman from amongst their own number who, in the absence of the Chairman, shall have all the powers of the Chairman both at meetings of the Board and of the Company during the year in question.
At the Annual General Meeting at which the Chairman, or as the case may be, the Vice-Chairman, retires after a three years as a Director, if the Chairman of the Annual General Meeting is not re-elected to the Board he shall nevertheless retain the Chair until the conclusion of that meeting and shall be deemed to possess all the powers of the Chairman for this express purpose notwithstanding that he is no longer a member of the Board.
