If you are considering the appointment of a director, then you will need to follow certain procedures in order to avoid any potential legal troubles. In this blog post, we will outline these procedures and provide a resolution template to help make the process smoother.
The resolution description for the appointment of Director can be found on the company’s website, if not specified in the by-laws.
The resolution should set out:
– The name and qualifications of the person to be appointed;
– The term of office;
– The compensation and benefits that will be payable to the director.
Resolution Voting Process
The resolution voting process is a formal way in which a group of people can vote on whether or not they believe that the appointment of a particular individual or group is appropriate. It is used to make decisions about who should be appointed to positions within an organisation, such as directors, officers, and members.
There are several different types of resolution voting process, but the most common is called majority rule. This type of resolution voting process works by counting the number of votes cast in favour of the resolution (or option) compared to the total number of votes cast. If the number of votes in favour is greater than the number of votes against, then the resolution or option is approved.
If there are more votes against than in favour, then the resolution or option does not pass and must be re-voted on by the group. This process can be repeated as many times as necessary until a resolution or option has been approved.
Another type of resolution voting process is called consensus decision making. In this type of voting process, all members of a group are allowed to vote on any resolutions or options that are put forward. The goal is for everyone in attendance to agree on which resolutions or options should be voted on, so that no one member can effectively veto proposed decisions.
Once all resolutions or options have been put forward and everyone has had an opportunity to vote, the winner(s) of each vote is recorded and considered to have been passed by
Resolution Signing Process
The resolution signing process is an important step in the appointment of a director. The resolution should be drafted in a clear and concise manner and should express the company’s intentions for appointing the new director. There are a number of steps that must be followed during the resolution signing process, including:
1. Approval of the resolutions by shareholders. This can be done through a vote at a meeting or by written consent.
2. Submission of resolutions to the registrar.
3. Notification to directors appointed pursuant to Notice of Resolution Meeting (NRM) or Nomination Document (ND). Directors appointed pursuant to NRM must receive notice within ten days after the date on which resolutions were submitted to the registrar, and directors appointed pursuant to ND must receive notice within two days after the date on which resolutions were submitted to the registrar.
4. Determining whether directors have met their statutory appointment requirements. Directors appointed pursuant to NRM must have complied with section 142(1) of the Companies Act, no later than thirty days after receiving notice from the registrar, and directors appointed pursuant to ND must have complied with section 142(1) of the Companies Act no later than five days after receiving notice from the registrar. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in removal from office at any time by action of shareholders supported by at least two-thirds (2/3) voting power in accordance with section 176(1)(a)
Who Shall be Present at the Meeting
The Meeting should be attended by the Board of Directors, any alternate directors nominated by the Board of Directors and each Director who is a voting member of the Board of Directors.

Quorum for a Meeting
A quorum for a meeting is a minimum number of people who must be present in order to conduct the meeting. Generally, a quorum is 10% of the total members of an organization. If the quorum is not met, the meeting cannot proceed and may be invalid.
If there are less than 10% of the members present, then only those members who were present at the beginning of the meeting can vote. If there are more than 10% but less than 50%, then only those members who were present at the beginning and at the end of the voting period can vote. If there are more than 50%, then all members can vote.
