BASES Strategy / Governance • Current vacancy on the Board for one Non-Executive Director (NED). • The BASES Board have undertaken a skills analysis audit which shows the Board could be enhanced with a number of different business skills (Financial/Risk/Legal/Business Acumen/Branding) • The Board is recommending to the membership an amendment to the Rules to allow “up to four independent Non-Executive Directors” (Clause 14. 1 currently states “normally two non-executive directors”) • This would allow the Board to recruit up to three new independent NEDs to fill the skill gaps identified
