Board pon­ders limit to years deputies can serve

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BY SI­MON ROCKER

THE BOARD of Deputies is look­ing to im­prove its chances of at­tract­ing fresh blood by re­strict­ing the num­ber of years served by deputies.

Un­der pro­pos­als to be de­bated later in the year, deputies would have to re­tire af­ter six or nine years.

Al­though they could stand again for elec­tion af­ter an in­ter­lude, it is sug­gested they would be lim­ited to a max­i­mum to­tal of 18 years.

Also un­der con­sid­er­a­tion is the scrap­ping of the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­in­form tee and its re­place­ment with a trus­tee board.

The ex­ec­u­tive cur­rently com­prises the five hon­orary of­fi­cers, the vicechair­men of the four di­vi­sions, re­gional rep­re­sen­ta­tives and four other deputies. The pro­posed smaller trus­tee group would con­sist of the five of­fi­cers — pres­i­dent, three vice-pres­i­dents and trea­surer — plus up to four other deputies.

But the Board would have to de­cide whether to elect all trustees or give the of­fi­cers the power to co-opt the other trustees.
