At each subsequent annual general meeting one-third of the trustees, or if not three or a multiple of three, the enarest number to one third must retire from office. If there is only one trustee he or she must retire.
The trustees to retire br rotation shall be those who have been longest in office since their last election. If any trustees became or were elected trustees on the same day those to retire shall be determined by lot.
No trustee may be re-elected more than once in succession after his or her first term of office. A retiring trustee may stand for re-election, but his or her continuous years in office shall not exceed six. Thereafter a former may stand for election after having been out of office for a minimum of one year.trustee
Comment: we are a voluntary organisation and have difficulty in filling posts. We are anxious not to lose good people when they are no replacements. There is also confsuion about how this rotation works as it is impossible at present to follow these rules sensibly and fairly. Thank you.
Yes it is permissible to hold annual elections for officers and trustees.
You could amend the rotation clause to say that if no others come forward then the officer may be re-elected for a new term.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
