3.03 Election and Term

…the directors of the Chapter shall be elected, in rotation, for a term of three (3) years, and upon the expiration of their respective term of office shall retire but shall be eligible for re-election. The election shall be by ordinary resolution made by ballot, show of hands or acclamation (if applicable) as the Chair of the meeting may determine. If an election of directors is not held at the proper time, the incumbent directors shall continue in office until their successors are elected.

In addition to the qualification, elected Directors will hold to the following Code of Ethics:

Directors consent to act as a Director of the Corporation and agree to comply with the following Directors’ Code of Ethics throughout their term(s) as a Director:

Directors will exercise the degree of care, diligence and skill of a reasonably prudent person in comparable circumstances. They will make a concerted effort to attend all Board and owners’ meetings. They will act responsibly and with due diligence to become familiar with the affairs of the Corporation and to uphold its Declaration, Description Plans, By-Laws, Rules, Resolutions, Policies, Agreements and Requirements of the Condominium Act and other legislation. They will not disclose to any person (including their spouse) information decided by the Board to be confidential or privileged or which reasonably ought to be deemed confidential. When in doubt, they will request determination by a resolution of the Board. They will abide by decisions of the majority of the Directors even though they may disagree, but they reserve the right to express their own views to owners upon non-confidential issues. They will not make erroneous or defamatory statements about the Corporation or any owner, resident, director, officer, manager, staff or contractor of the Corporation. Recognizing that governance of a Condominium Corporation involves complex and changing requirements, Directors will continue to educate themselves in the affairs of condominium operations by reading relevant material and/or attending appropriate educational seminars.
