The board recently passed a resolution, which you will find below
In the aftermath of the resignation of Michael Davis (effective october
31th, 2007) and Erik Moëller (effective december 15th, 2007), the board
confirms its will to replace the two former board members, as well as
its committment to expand the number of members on the board of
directors at the earliest convenience, up to a number of 11 members
maximum. Due to its commitment to involve members from the community, at
least half of the new members will be appointed for a term ending at the
next board elections, in june 2008.
1. It means you updated bylaws? If I recall correctly it said the
Board of Trustees shall be nine at maximum. If updatred, is there any
other part you have/are considering to update bylaws?
2. "at least half of new members will be appointed": are those new
members including two replacements? (11-5)/2 and (9-7)/2 are not same
so I would be happy to have it clarify.
My understanding (though Florences reply makes me doubt my interpretation
a bit) was that "at least half of new members will be appointed for a term
at the next board elections, in june 2008." ( a bit more context with the
quote ), meant that though most appointed seats would be of a longer
duration to be confirmed by the board, those appointed only until the next
board elections would be elected seats after that.
3. What made you decide to expand it to 11, not 9
What the current Board of Trustees expect those two additional seats
make difference from the original plan?
