You are not wrong in what you are saying, but would you know the role of Michael Hawker by any chance - do we need a Michael Hawker, and also a Bill Pulver?
Are you asking what the role of the Chairman of the board of directors is or what Hawker specifically does in that role?
It's very much a part time gig, and for what the ARU (should?) get for their money, given his CV, experience and business connections, pretty good value for money too (Hawker only had a salary of $32k last year).
Of course I have no idea about his performance in board meetings etc
