15.2 Subject to the other provisions of this Article, Board Members elected at the Annual General Meeting in 2015 shall serve until the Annual General Meeting to be held in 2017. At the Annual General Meeting in 2017, half of all Board Members shall be elected until the Annual General Meeting occurring two years thereafter, and half shall be elected until the Annual General Meeting to be held one year thereafter, with the terms to be selected by lot.
