That is actually part of the confusion: it is 1/3 per election (which
are normally once per year). While that leads to a kind of effective
term it isn't really quite the same.

IMHO that would be quite a sensible solution, however I didn't want to
sidetrack the discussion of the most important issue right now. It is
something that a renewed board could put before the membership on its
own accord.
