Main responsibilities

The role of the Nominating Committee is to propose potential directors of the society who:

  • are considered most likely to represent and serve the society well;

  • who will assist the society to achieve its objectives and desired structure as reported on by the Board.

The Nominating Committee is appointed by the Board and comprises five individuals as follows:

  • The predecessor to the society‚Äôs current Chairman who will act as chairman of the Nominating Committee for a two year term; and
  • Three directors who are not eligible for re-election that year and who do not hold the executive offices; and
  • One person who is either a senior member or other distinguished member of the profession of financial analysis and who the Nominating Committee believes is unlikely to stand to become a member of the Board at any time in the future.
