This reminds me of Community Land Trusts, which are a similar multi-stakeholder organization, where residents (33%), the community (33%), and “subject expects” (33%) have equal says on the board.

Since the number of board members aren’t specified anywhere, as far as I can see, declaring a proportional representation of each class like this, rather than declaring direct amounts, is more robust and equitable.
