Motion No.

Ciara Staunton

Motion
Article 41 – To increase term limits of Committee Members from one, to two years, with a maximum of up to 4 consecutive terms (8 years). Persons will be re eligible for election following a two year absence from the committee.

Rationale
In the context of succession planning and to align with standard terms of appointment across modern Boards and Committees the current procedure of annual elections of Committee Members is not conducive to effective succession planning for the long term effectiveness of the NSEC. It is therefore proposed that Committee members are elected for two-year terms and that Committee members can serve no more than 4 successive terms (8 years).
