All Employer Directors are appointed after being nominated in writing by Telstra. Alternate Employer Directors have also been nominated by Telstra to vote and act in the absence of appointed Employer Directors.
The Chairman may only be appointed, removed or have the terms of appointment varied upon the resolution of directors.
