Maybe it should be some else asking this but "realy " ???

To my understanding this was the reason of this being an SGMM. 

So why bother to have the meeting  if even after the extension community gave we do not have the documents ready. 

Is there something very wrong ???

Due to work pressure on Management, the task of synthesizing the various views and discussions so far on the subject, has only recently been completed. The CEO has provided the Board with a revised draft of the Governance Committee Terms of Reference, and the Board expects to make it public within the next week.

???? We know there is allot of work to do and appreciate but there is something called prioritisation.  

Does board need to approve more staff to get things done ?

With the above the least we would expect is that board is ready to have this meeting but expecting people to invest and come and you have not valued our time by being ready.  To complete last years audit report. 

Again maybe I'm just too demanding
