(c) Director - if the person has been a member of the ABHA for not lessthan two years prior to the nomination.
Please note as per the ABHA Constitution each position if for a ternyear term. In 2013 at the Special General Meeting held in Corryong it was votedthat the all Board positions be staggered - President and 4 Board positions inan odd year (2013, 2015, 2017 etc) and Vice President and 3 Board positions inan even year (2014, 2016, 2018 etc). Due to one of Board team resigning halfway through their two year term this one position will be only for 1 year toensure we keep the staggered Board.
