Micah Global–Board and Trustees

by Micah Board

Micah Global Board Member and Trustees requirements

Introduction: Under our constitution (so-called Memorandum and Articles of Association, “Mem and Arts” or M&A) trustees are appointed by majority vote of the existing trustees. Note that the terms “Trustee” (relevant to the charity) and “director/coordinator” (relevant to its subsidiary company limited by guarantee) are used interchangeably and indiscriminately. 

One might think that vote of the members would be “fairer”, but it becomes a legal nightmare defining member rights and recourses, election processes etc. So, we have a procedure that looks to achieve a similar outcome in a way that is consistent with our values.
