I don't think so. I don't think the board should even have these powers. The board
is there to execute the members instructions, no? I would very much be against
an organisation where the board can just do as it sees fit with statutory changes
et all.

So therefore, leaving out that the companies have power effectively defines that
the companies have no power over the organisation whatsoever.
