165. Resignation and removal



(1) An appointed member of the Board ceases to hold office if the member-

   (a)  has been convicted in Victoria or elsewhere of an indictable offence
        or an offence that, if committed in Victoria, would be an indictable
        offence; or

   (b)  becomes an insolvent under administration; or

   (c)  resigns by writing delivered to the Governor in Council; or

   (d)  is removed from office by the Governor in Council under subsection
        (2).





(2) The Governor in Council may remove an appointed member from office on the
ground that-

   (a)  the member is absent, without leave having been granted by the Board,
        from 3 consecutive meetings of which reasonable notice has been given
        to the member, either personally or by post, fax, email or other
        electronic communication; or

   (b)  the member is incapable of carrying out the duties or functions of
        office; or

   (c)  the member has engaged in misconduct in carrying out the member's
        duties or functions of office; or

   (d)  the member has personally engaged in conduct that a court or tribunal
        has found to be in contravention of an equal opportunity or
        anti-discrimination law of an Australian jurisdiction and, if the
        member had engaged in the conduct in carrying out the member's duties
        or functions of office, the conduct would have amounted to misconduct
        in carrying out those duties or functions.
