Past AGM Questions & Answers
Your 2010 questions
Question 1- Why did Catherine James resignfrom the BV board, then return as a casual appointment, and now stand for re-election?
Catherine resigned as a Board Member for personal reasons, which fortunately were resolved speedily. Whenever a causal vacancy occurs, the Board considers all available candidates and the contribution they are capable of making having regard to the time required to bring new Board Members “up to speed” for the remainder of the vacancy term. In this instance Catherine was obviously “up to speed” and her contribution was considered; it was decided to appoint her to the casual vacancy.
Question 2- Cycle pod, walking school bus type program
