Council of Lloyd's - Notice of election

Council of Lloyd's

Fri 22 Nov 2019

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that, in accordance with the Constitutional Arrangements Byelaw (No. 2 of 2010) (“the Byelaw”), the terms of office of the following members of the Council expire on 31 January 2020:

Working Members:  ANDREW BROOKS

Individual External Member: NAMECO 1249 LIMITED
    (Represented by JEFFERY BARRATT)

    (Represented by DOMINICK HOARE)

The allocation of external seats between individual external members and C-external members on the Council is determined in accordance with paragraph 2.2 of the Byelaw.

Accordingly, pursuant to the Byelaw, the Council has set a ballot date of 17 January 2020 to elect two working members, one individual external member and one C-external member of the Council.  The term of office for each of these vacancies shall be for a period of four months and shall commence on 1 February 2020.

The Byelaw limits members of the Council (other than the Chief Executive Officer) to serve no more than nine years in aggregate as a member of the Council.

The Byelaw limits the eligibility of “connected” members sitting on the Council at the same time.  As a consequence, additional vacancies may arise when the results of the election are known.  In that event the additional vacancies will be filled by the candidates with the next highest number of votes in the relevant constituency and the term of office will be for the unexpired term of office of the member resigning.
