Due to Covid-19 restrictions in 2020, the Board of Directors applied to delay the AGM and election until 2021, thus we are holding 2 AGM’s and received nominations for 2 elections this year. As such, Directors that would have been up for election in 2020 had their term extended to this year, resulting in Board openings for 1 year and 2-year terms. The election results by Acclamation are at the top of this page.
