The Artistic Projects Selection Committees shall be responsible to the Board of Directors. They report to it.
The Artistic Projects Selection Committees act by delegation from the Board of Directors.
These four committees are responsible for the application of Article L.324-17 of the French Intellectual Property Code.
The Board of Directors appoints the members of the Selection Committees by a simple majority of the directors present or represented under the conditions set out in Article 2.2 of the General Regulation. Voting takes place by secret ballot. In the event of a tie, a second round of voting shall take place. If the tie persists at the end of the second round, a draw is made between the candidates having obtained the same number of votes.
Each director may only be appointed to a maximum of one Artistic Projects Selection Committee and three Statutory Committees.
In the event of the death, resignation or dismissal of a member of a Selection Committee, the Managing Director shall call to sit the candidate who obtained the highest number of votes in the last nominations, taking into account, where appropriate, the capacity and the reserved seat occupied by the member to be replaced. In the event of a tie, the winner will be drawn by lot.
The new member thus appointed shall remain in office until the expiry of the term of office of the member he replaces and may himself be replaced under the conditions mentioned in the previous paragraph.
