appointment (noun, ap-point-ment, /əˈpɔɪntmənt/) directors (plural noun, di-rec-tors, /dɪˈrektərz/)
Definition: is a process of appointing the directors of a company or an organization, typically executed by its first and original investors at the beginning of a company’s growth. Normally, the investors pick the directors among themselves. The appointed directors are named in the association articles after they sign the required documents and agree to take the head position. An appointment of directors usually takes place during the general meetings. Even though the procedure is commonly carried out by the investors at the beginning of a business’s development, the existing directors can also fill the board of directors vacancies later. However, their decisions might require a confirmation from the investors, depending on the company rules.
In a Sentence:
