As some of you may be aware, we have a number of positions on the Board of Directors which will become available at the AGM this year. One position has become vacant following the resignation of Ms Gwen Cherne during 2020. Two positions become vacant following the completion of elected terms, as per clause 8.5 (a) of the Company Constitution. All three positions are elected positions and nominations are now open.
This is an important time for our organisation as we begin to evolve and expand our services and support. Directors will have a very important role to play in our future and will assist the Company navigate the changes and challenges in our operating environment.
As in previous years, the CEO (also the Company Secretary) and will receive the nominations. Should there be a postal ballot required, that process will be overseen by the Company Auditors.
