Explanatory note - election of directors
In accordance with the AMBA Constitution and By-Laws, directors appointed to a casual vacancy are only appointed until the next AGM, but are eligible for election at that meeting. Additionally, the AMBA By-Laws provide that the term of office for each director is two successive years, after which they must retire but are eligible for re-election up to a maximum term of 6 years. The By-Laws also require a director to only hold a particular portfolio for a maximum of 3 years.
Having regard to these requirements, six directors are required to retire at this AGM, having served a two-year term, an additional third year, or having been appointed to a casual vacancy. All are eligible for election/re-election. The names of those directors and the portfolios that they currently represent are:

[Chairperson - appointed 26 October 2013 to the Technology portfolio]
[Club Services - appointed 24 October 2015 to the Member Services portfolio]

In addition to those board directors required to retire at this AGM, there are additional vacancies on the board, currently representing the portfolios of Governance and Marketing & Communications. Please contact the Chairperson, Ashlee, for further information.
