This doesn't seem too unreasonable in itself, but it is somewhat surprising
that you didn't readjust the board's composition accordingly.  The
justification for having unelected seats is to ensure that the board has
people with specific skills or backgrounds, and my impression was that
getting someone with accounting experience to serve as treasurer was part
of that.
