2.     Proposed New Rule

In the event of a society transferring its engagements to Central England Co-operative Limited, the proposed new Rule would allow the Board, at its absolute discretion, to appoint directors of the society which is transferring its engagements to serve as Interim Directors for a limited period.

Proposed new Rule (Rule 78A):

78A:    In the event that the Society receives a transfer of engagements under the Act, then the Board may at its absolute discretion appoint member elected directors of the society which is transferring its engagements as Directors of the Society (the “Interim Directors”), on or after the date that the Society resolves to accept the transfer.  Any Interim Directors so appointed shall hold office for a maximum period of twelve months.  No appointment of an Interim Director may be made if it would mean any breach of the restrictions in Rules 75 to 77.
