Clause 1 provides that all members of the Board of Governors of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia are appointed for a term not exceeding three years. At present, a member representing a visual arts organization is appointed for a term of one year.
Clause 2 removes the present by-law powers of the Board which are being added by subclause 3(a) to Section 11.
(a) adds simplified by-law powers of the Board; and
(b) removes some powers of the Board which are being added by Clause 4 to Section 11A.
Clause 4 adds existing powers of the Board from Section 11 so that they will no longer be subject to approval of the Minister of Communities, Culture and Heritage or the Governor in Council.
Clause 5 repeals a provision rendered redundant by Clause 2.
