l haven't checked recently but it would effect Henk, Dermot, Oliver, Mikel and Steve if I recall correctly.

IMHO if the 3rd resolution is accepted the board should use the opportunity and use the GM as the yearly meeting, breaking the linkage with SOTM. Naturally 2014 financial would be presented at such a meeting. As I've already pointed out from a regulatory pov the report needs to be distributed to the members before the end of May in any case, so this would work out nicely.

A larger board makes it , more difficult to gain complete control. Why do you think Steve was suggesting reducing it to 3? Further a board which is no longer a mashup of operational and strategic roles could and should have a number of different view points and opinions.

This is not necessary given that the process to require a meeting has completed and the board has essentialy no leeway except from a timing point of view.
