  12. Remits
    • Remit 1: Proposed by the NZSSRA Board
      The following remit is a remit to update the provisions relating to directors and the Board. It adds processes for dealing with vacancies. And it adjusts the appointment and term for directors. The changes will make the Board structure more resilient.

      It is moved that:
      1. The existing article 9.3 is updated to:
        9.3 The President shall have sole discretion for the appointment of the Board. The President shall appoint four directors, as follows:
         A. The President shall appoint one director each year. Each director will hold office for four years from the date of appointment by the President.
         B. In the event of an extraordinary vacancy among the directors the President shall appoint a replacement director who will hold office for the remainder of the vacated term.
         C. The Board will notify Members within fourteen days of any change to the composition of the Board.

        Note: This changes directorships from a rotation of 2 every year and 2-year terms to 1 each year and 4-year terms. That way the Board is unlikely to end up without a quorum. And it adds a specific process for filling extraordinary vacancies. One that preserves the annual 1-director appointment rotation.
      And;
      1. Insert a new 9.3 (and re-number existing clauses accordingly):
        9.3 In the event of an extraordinary vacancy of the presidency, if the next AGM is not due to be held within 6 months then the Schools Committee shall call an SGM with the sole purpose of electing a new President. The SGM shall be held by electronic or postal ballot and the provisions in Article 9.2 that relate to an AGM shall be applied to the SGM; except the three years in Article 9.2.E shall be measured from the AGM that follows the SGM.

        note: This provides a mechanism for if the presidency unexpectedly falls vacant. If there is an AGM within 6 months, then it remains vacant until the AGM. The Board and Schools Committee can function without a President in the short term. Over a longer period, or if there is no President nominated/elected at the relevant AGM then a SGM is triggered to find a new President.
