When an elected member of the Committee’s leadership team resigns in mid-term, the Chair (or, jointly, the co-Chairs) will nominate an ESG Committee member to serve out the rest of the term, and that nomination will be ratified by a simple majority of ESG Committee members present at the same meeting where the nomination is made. If the Chair’s nomination fails to be ratified, nominations will be solicited for a secret ballot to be held at the following monthly meeting; the candidate receiving the most votes will prevail.
In the case where the Chair resigns his or her post, and there is no co-Chair, then the Committee Secretary(s) will solicit nominations for a secret ballot to be held at the monthly meeting following the announcement of the Chair’s resignation; the candidate receiving the most votes will prevail.
To qualify to vote on ESG Committee matters, a member must have attended at least two (2) ESG Committee meetings in the past twelve (12) months and must attend (either physically or virtually) the meeting at which the vote is held. The member may send a representative to the meeting to vote on his or her behalf.
