Dear Member,

It’s that time of year again when the Forever Bury Board is looking for new blood. There are six of the twelve 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 and candidate statements up to 400 words by noon on Friday 19th August 2011. 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 in September.

The result of the election will be announced at the AGM on Thursday 6th October 2011.

Copies of the Election Rules, based on Supporters Direct Best Practice rules can be obtained from the cabin, via the Forever Bury postal address, email susan.tunstall@btinternet.com or downloaded from www.foreverbury.org

The AGM is where 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 susan.tunstall@btinternet.com by the 5th September 2011. 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.

Susan Tunstall

Secretary Forever Bury
