Following a challenging financial year for the Club, find out who will lead the community over the coming 12 months.
This hybrid annual meeting includes the results of the Board of Governors election (the representative governor is selected by the Board after the meeting) and offers Members the chance to ask questions about the budget and other Club issues.
Those eligible Members not registered as Voting Members who would like to take part in this important governance process can learn more about registering through the Voting webpage.
While the new Board adjourns to select the representative governor at its first meeting, attendees will be served drinks.
Besides voting in the Board of Governors election, Voting Members are asked to vote on a number of resolutions, including the Club’s budget for the 2021 financial year, the selection of a statutory auditor and redefining the terms and conditions for Special Members.
In this Board election, up to five American, one Japanese and one “other nationality” candidates may be elected to serve on the Board. Voting Members may vote for as many candidates as they wish, regardless of the number of Board positions to fill.
Candidates must receive a majority (over 50 percent) of votes to be in contention for election to the Board. Positions are then filled in the order of the number of votes received by each candidate.
With 12 candidates vying for five US citizen positions this year, there is a greater possibility of five candidates failing to secure the required majority than in recent years. In such an outcome, vacant positions may be filled through an election at a subsequent general meeting.
