Hello Phil,

I think in essence that you are correct that in addition to removing the Board via a Board as a whole spill process, that the community still has the option of removing individual Board members through the individual Board member recall process.   So yes it is possible to remove all the voting directors, by exercising that process on a one-by-one basis.

In terms of removing the chair or vice-chair of the Board, the community is effectively removing the Board director that currently holds that role.   If that happens, the Board will of course elect a replacement chair or vice-chair  from the remaining Board directors.   

I would expect that if an individual Board director that is currently the chair became subject to an individual Board member recall process, that the chair would stand down pending the outcome of the process and the vice-chair would take over until such time as an new chair is appointed.   

So doubt the discussion will end up being a discussion to remove the chair, but a discussion about the performance of the individual Board director.   At least I hope that is how the processes will be used.
