Yes, I agree.  We want a mix of both old and new members at any one time.
That way, we don't get a radical change of plans or focus every year.

So, there are some members who want to leave FESCO at the moment.  That is
fine.  Thank them for their contributions and let them go.  Then elect
enough members to make FESCO a governing body of 13.  Then in 6 months,
those that were there already have their term up and you elect another half.
