Board

Glen Industries is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors.  Our constitution provides for up to ten (10) Directors at any one point in time, with 50% of the Directors vacating their position on a two year rotation.  Directors are able to re-nominate at the end of each cycle. We currently have nine (9) Directors.

Nominations for the Board of Directors are open at any time whilst ever their is vacancy in our constitutional capacity.  Alternatively, the vacating positions are advertised leading into the Annual General Meeting, which is held in September of each year.
