The Supporters' Trust have provided the following update on the elections.
There were five vacancies on the Trust Board for elected candidates.
The Trust Board received:
- 5 valid nominations
- 1 further nomination was declared invalid (on the grounds of incomplete sections and not conforming to the rules relating to 'e-nominations')
- 1 further expression of interest was received after 5.00pm on Frida, August 31 (the closing time for nominations was midday) and was therefore rejected.
In accordance with Section 8.3 in the Trust Election Policy (see below), there will not be an election.
The successful nominees will be presented to the Annual General Meeting on Saturday, October 27, where an affirmative ballot shall be held in accordance with Section 8.3 of the Trust Election Policy (Sections 8.3, 8.4 and 8.5 are set out for information below).
The full manifesto of each nominee can be found HERE.
The nominees are:
- Jon Beer
- Mark Cordell
- Elaine Davis
- Pete Holding
- Christopher Phillips
The Trust Board would like to publicly record their thanks to John Street, Returning Officer, for his advice and guidance in this election process.
EXTRACT FROM TRUST ELECTION POLICY
8.3: If there are as many or fewer candidates than there are places, an affirmative ballot shall be held at the AGM. Each successfully nominated candidate will be put before the meeting for the approval of members. Any candidate not receiving the support of more than half of those present in person and by proxy shall be deemed to have not been elected. The exception shall be that should the failure to elect any of the validly nominated candidates leave the Board below the minimum required under the Rules for them to act, all validly nominated candidates shall be deemed elected by the EMG and this declared at the AGM.
8.4: The result shall be communicated to members on the Society’s website and in the Society’s newsletter (if they have one) and at the AGM or next members’ meeting (if it is possible to complete the count at the AGM in question).
8.5: Successful candidates shall become full members of the Society Board upon receipt of their signed acceptance of the Board Membership and Conduct Policy.
