Perhaps we should change 13.4 to say that the Directors in seats 1 to 6 should “reside in”, not “represent”, the six sub-regions.

Historically, we have had Directors who changed their place of residence after being elected, such that they no longer resided in the relevant sub-region, but they did not resign.

The companies act specifically states that a director may only be removed in a meeting dedicated to that purpose with that being the only item on the agenda.  So while I have no problem with the community being able to recall a director, it must be through a dedicated meeting and not through the addition of an agenda item at a regular meeting.

I’ll check on that, and make a suitable chaneg if necessary.
