In such event, the tenure of office of the Vice Captain shall be extended for a similar period. Council Office Bearers and Council Members shall hold office for two years, and one half of such members shall retire at each Annual General Meeting and shall be eligible for re-election (subject to drawing of lots if necessary, to decide those retiring).

Nominations (with the consent of the nominee) for election to any Honorary Office or as an Ordinary Member of Council shall be made:-

The respective Councils shall have power to fill vacancies in any of these offices (including membership of its Council) during any year. The persons so appointed shall hold office until the next Annual General Meeting of the particular Club.
