It’s that time of year again when the Forever Bury Board is looking for new blood. There are eight of the fourteen places on the board up for election. All the retiring board members are free to seek re-election.

All current Forever Bury members can stand for the board, but must be nominated by two current Forever Bury members. The independent scrutineer must have received all nominations by 5pm on Tuesday 29th August 2006.

If there are more nominations than places on the board an election will be held and the election papers will be sent out with the AGM notice at the end of September. The result of the election will be announced at the AGM in October.

A copy of the Election Policy, which you will be asked to ratify at the AGM is now available online here.

A nomination form is available online here.

The AGM is the were members can have a say in the future direction of the trust, all current members can put forward motions to be voted on at the AGM. All motions need to be sent to the Secretary, at the usual address or via e-mail to secretary@foreverbury.org by the 15th September 2006. The secretary will check that the proposer is a current member and that the motion is not against the constitution or does not ask the society to do something, which is illegal. If the motion is in order it will be added to the AGM agenda to be voted on by the members.
