Presumably, unless something important and controversial happens. A proxy
could be by email to the Secretary, if full headers are attached. it's
something of a preoccupation; I've just finished a term as national

I sould also add that giving tasks to the Exec as a whole is fine too -
but you need to be specific, cos in two years time when you're gone,
