ACAud Constitution limits number of Directors from same Holding/Parent Company

Article 7.2.3 in the ACAud Constitution states: “There can be no more than 3 Board members from the same Holding/Parent Company”. Should this situation arise, below is the procedure.

  • If the number of nominations received from persons from the same Holding/Parent Company exceed the number of vacant positions on the Board for persons from that Holding/Parent Company, a ballot will be held.
  • Vacant positions will be filled by considering the number of votes and the candidates’ Holding/Parent Company to ensure all requirements under the Constitution are met. A ballot will be held, which includes all candidates. Of these candidates, the highest votes will be elected depending on available positions.
  • The candidate from the other Holding/Parent Company will be determined to have been elected according to 7.2 in By-Law 97-3.
  • In case of a tied vote that impacts the results, the candidates will be informed of the tie, asked if they wish to contest the position and a second ballot will be sent to the membership.
