Appointed directors are appointed by the Board of Directors after going through an application process. New directors serve a probationary period of 6 months and on completing probation, serve 2 year terms renewable up to a maximum of 6 years, except when appointed to Executive Director, at which time the clock is reset to zero, and the ED may serve up to a maximum of 5 years.
