Annual General Meeting COTA WA
Tuesday 25th October 2016 at 2.00pm
The Perron Centre, 61 Kitchener Avenue Victoria Park
Motion of the Board of Directors
The Board of Directors notes that in the COTA WA Constitution under paragraph 12 it states:
12.5 Duration of Appointment
12.5.1 Duration of membership of the Board for elected members shall be three (3) years from the date of the General Meeting at which they were elected unless Board vacancies have occurred during the previous year which have disrupted the orderly succession of Directors intended under section 12.5.2, in which case election may be for a period of one or two years. The Directors who will serve for less than 3 years shall be determined by lot.
No person, whether elected or co-opted, may serve on the Board for more than six (6) consecutive years, i.e. two (2) terms unless Directors unanimously agree that there is a need for the continuing service of an individual who will complete six consecutive years in office when elections are next held and recommend to members that the person concerned should be permitted to nominate for re-election until the next ensuing Annual General Meeting. Directors shall not recommend nomination for re-election of any person who has served as a Director for nine consecutive years.
Nominations for re-election have been received from:
- Judy Hogben
- Hon Bob Kucera
- Shelley Whitaker
all of whom are currently Directors and are keen to continue to contribute to the ongoing work of COTA WA.
The Board of COTA WA unanimously recommends to members that Judy Hogben, Bob Kucera and Shelley Whitaker should be permitted to nominate for re-election at the Annual General Meeting to be held on October 25th, 2016.
Proposed: Bettine Heathcote, Vice President
Seconded: Gerri Clay, Executive Member
