Unless Article applies, upon that person ceasing to hold office as an Honorary Treasurer or Vice President, he or she may resume the Term (which was previously suspended) as a Non-Officer Trustee. The Board may in its absolute discretion determine how any remaining part of the Term is calculated; the most senior Vice President may become the President in accordance with Article 15.3; and if a person has served as a President, the Board may resolve to allow that person to hold office as a Past President (a Non-Officer Trustee) for a Term after he or she ceases to be the President. Such a Term shall start on the date of (and at the close of) the AGM at which he or she ceases to be the President and end, subject always to Article , immediately on the date of (and at the close of) the second AGM to fall after the AGM at which he or she ceased to be President Subject to Article 12.6, a Non-Officer Trustee may at any time during a Term make a written request to the Board to take a sabbatical for up to two years.

A technical defect in the appointment of a Trustee of which the Trustees are unaware at the time does not invalidate decisions taken at a meeting. Notwithstanding any other provisions of these Articles or the actual length of an individual's service as Trustee at the date of the AGM at which these Articles are 14

15 resolved to be adopted, the following transitional arrangements shall apply in relation to the Trustees who were serving as at that date: the second Term of each of Chris Lewis and Cathy Kennedy shall be deemed to end at the 2012 AGM and, subject to Articles 12.5 and 12.7, each of them shall be eligible for re-election for a third Term at the AGM in that year; and subject to Article , the rules relating to an individual's service as a Trustee (where he or she was a Trustee prior to the AGM and continues as a Trustee after the AGM) shall be the rules in force immediately prior to that AGM (the Existing Rules); and whilst Suzanne Tracey has been appointed for a fixed period until the 2012 AGM, she shall be deemed at that point to have served as a Trustee for two full Terms and, subject to Articles 12.5 and 12.7, she shall be eligible for re-election for a third Term at that AGM. the Board shall have the power to determine any conflict or inconsistency between the Existing Rules and the rules relating to an individual's service as a Trustee which are set out in these Articles. 13 Trustees' proceedings The Trustees must hold at least three Board meetings each year Meetings may be called by the President or by the Secretary at the request of any two Trustees.

Every issue may be determined by a simple majority of the votes 13.5 cast at a Board meeting (as evidenced by a show of hands), but a written resolution signed by all the Trustees is as valid as a resolution passed at such a meeting. For this purpose the resolution may be contained in more than one document and will be treated as passed on the date of the last signature. Except for the chair of the meeting, who has a second or casting 13.6vote, every Trustee has one vote on each issue.
