Indeed the elders can only play an advisory role, they are not above the 
board. They can jointly or in part help in the identification of the the 
non geographical/special interest board members. The practice is that a 
board can have a selection committee from amongst itself. The board can 
also make interim appointments in case of a casual vacancy in between 
AGMs. It must be noted that in the ultimate directors are 
appointed/elected by the shareholders/members. So in whatever 
combination the board and the elders can only select and and recommend 
to the members for election.
