Hi, everyone!
I got a question about whether it is possible that there is no chairperson at a directors' meeting? Will this meeting be invaild because of this?

In practical terms, the constitution/rules of the body will provide for a selection of a chairperson from the participants in attendance (provided there is a quorum). What's the context of your question?

Thanks for answering.

It was a small proprietary company and three of the directors had a directors' meeting. But it didn't mention who is the chairperson. So I am confused will the lack of chairperson be an issue?

I’ve yet to see a resolution invalidated because someone wasn’t picked as a chairperson.
