    Collingwood board meltdown gameday thread

    So how s So if you are correct, does this mean that a new director of a publicly listed company is never elected by the shareholders? So what does 9.6 of the attached constitution mean/allow? https://investors.jbhifi.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/JB-Hi-Fi-Limited-Constitution.pdf And...
