(c) All such appointments of the Coaches shall be for a period of three years and may be renewed for successive periods of three years provided that the pre-conditions set out in 2(b) above are satisfied at the time of each such re-appointment.

(d) All such appointments are subject of the right of the Director of Junior Chess & Education to suspend a Coach from entitlement to such appointment or to revoke such appointment at any time for good cause. Good cause shall include but not be limited to:
