The Officers of the Company are the Warden, Assistant Warden and Junior Warden; they are each elected by the Court, effectively the Company’s Board of Directors. While the Court itself consists nominally of 12 members, including the three Wardens, the number of members can be varied at the Court’s discretion. Each of the Officers serves for one calendar year, although in exceptional circumstances this period can be extended to two years. When the Warden retires he/she is automatically replaced by the Assistant Warden, who is in turn replaced by the Junior Warden; a new Junior Warden is then elected. Members of Court may serve no more than two 4-year terms, except where he/she has served as Warden, in which case the period as Warden is counted in addition to these two terms. The Company Secretary holds the title of Clerk.
