It is that time of year again when the Forever Bury Board is looking for new blood. There are eight 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 over the age of 16 years 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 Saturday 17th August 2019. Ideally, a passport-sized photo should be included. 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 August. The result of the election will be announced at the AGM to be held on Wednesday 25th September 2019 at 7.30pm (tbc). Once a date and venue has been confirmed, the members will be notified.
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 [email protected] 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 [email protected] by the 17th August 2019. 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.
