4.11 Appointments and Elections of Directors (*see below for information on appointing a proxy)
(a) Appointment of Directors
When new Board members are required, the Board of Directors will issue a call for statements of interest from the membership. The Board will appoint directors at annual general meetings. The Board will notify the membership of proposed appointees in the notice of annual general meeting. The board may also appoint interim board members to serve until the next annual general meeting to maintain quorum between annual general meetings. The membership will be notified of the appointment of interim board members upon their appointment.
(b) Elections of Directors
After assessing statements of interest for appointment to the Board from the membership; the board may choose instead to request nominees for election from members, and hold an election at an annual general meeting. Members will be notified of elections and nominees in the notice of annual general meeting. Where the number of nominees for election matches the number of available board positions, they will be considered elected by acclamation at the annual general meeting. In case of an election, the nominee(s) with the highest number of votes will fill the available board position(s).
