Inputs & Thoughts
The main reason for the move is that the minimum national directors restriction of AU Association rules, together with the fact that the majority of members are located within the EU, results in an artificial over-representation of AU members on the board. It is urgent because we cannot guarantee enough AU members willing to be board members in the near future.
