Voting members have the right to nominate a person to be a Director of Multiple Sclerosis Limited (MSL). You can read all about this in Section 6.4 of our Constitution.
In summary, a person who wishes to nominate for election must:
- Provide the Company with a signed notice stating they would like to be considered for election 60–90 business days before the meeting;
- Have a written endorsement from at least seven other members; and
- Sign a consent to act as a director
So there is an opportunity for a person to nominate themselves or another candidate to be elected, if the process described in section 6 of the constitution is followed.
You will appreciate that the above is a simplified summary and that we cannot provide legal advice, so members interested in this topic are encouraged to read the Constitution in full and to seek independent professional advice.
