Dear Member,

It’s that time of year again when the Forever Bury Board is looking for new blood. There are seven 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 Tuesday 21st August 2012. 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 27th September 2012 in the social club.
The nomination form can be downloded here
The nomination process is also open for the Forever Bury Representative to the Bury FC Board, all current members who have served at least 12 months on the Forever Bury Board are eligible to be nominated. Nomination forms are available in the cabin, can be downloaded here or are available by emailing the secretary, susan.tunstall@btinternet.com

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 1st September 2012. 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.

The Forever Bury Board is going to propose adopting the New Model Rules which have been issued by Supporters Direct, at the AGM. Copies of the rules and accompanying policies will be available for you to look at in the cabin and on the website from August.

Susan Tunstall
Secretary Forever Bury
