Additionally, the Exposure Draft lists an amendment that gives the option to appoint the chair from among the trustees or externally. Also noted in the amendments is that the vice-chairs would be appointed from the trustees and can serve a maximum of nine years, including time served as a trustee.
The proposed changes to the
Constitution are likely to help safeguard the Foundation’s stability through leadership continuity while ensuring proper diversity and independence among trustees. The amendments would also explain the conditions for Trustee reappointments.
