[rpd] Removal of a director

Hi Andrew,

Could you point to the bylaws section or the corporate document where   5% of members (registered and resources) can recall a director and vote by super majority?

Warm regards

Subject: [rpd] Removal of a director


There are those that have said on this list that there is no procedure to recall a sitting board member.

This is fundamentally inaccurate - there is. It requires the signatures of 5% of the membership base to call for it - and following that a vote by super majority.

If I recall there was a resolution proposed to make this easier - first by myself - it was voted down - and second proposed by the board in Mauritius - again it was voted down - so the procedure exists and is as difficult as it is because that is what this community wanted.

This community has a habit of voting against things based on who proposed them then coming and asking for them again later. I really wonder what will happen when a director finishes his term and refuses to hand back his legal membership - and as a result cannot be removed as a member of the company - and as a result no new directors can be appointed.  Since that is the status quo that this community voted for and legitimized in Mauritius when they voted against the need for a director to relinquish his status at the end of his term.

Fascinating how this community acts against their own interests and then wants a revisit once the idea becomes “invented here”

Just like it will be curious if that audit policy ever passes and audits are demanded of the authors - some of whom to this day only utilize 25% of their allocated space that they have sat on for close to a decade.
