Guild Officer Elections
We are just two weeks away from our Annual General Meeting in New Alresford and our Officer elections will be taking place there. Members have been encouraged to stand for office.
I’m pleased we were able to report last week that a candidate has come forward for the post of Master – Mike Winterbourne of Andover District.
Michael Church has advised me that he is willing to stand for election as one of the five Central Council Representatives.
I wish to stand for election to the post of Public Relations Officer.
These declared intentions do not preclude other nominations for the same posts.
It is likely that nominations will be made from the floor of the meeting on 2nd July and they can be made in advance of the meeting. Each candidate is required to provide a formal Proposer and Seconder. These two members could be present at the A.G.M. or, if either or both are unable to attend the meeting, they can contact Mo Routh, Honorary General Secretary with their nominations. If they are not going to be present at the AGM, please make sure she receives the details of candidate, proposer and seconder by the evening of Friday 1st July. There is no need for advance notice if the proposer and seconder will be at the meeting.
Nominations are invited for the following posts:
To be elected on, and to serve for 3 years from, Saturday 2nd July 2016 to the 2019 Guild A.G.M.
Hon. General Secretary
Hon. General Treasurer
Hon. Librarian and Archivist
Hon. Peal Recorder
Hon. Report Editor
Child Protection Officer
Public Relations Officer
Two Bell Restoration Fund Trustees (1 from each Diocese)
5 Central Council Representatives – to be elected on Saturday 2nd July 2016 and to serve for 3 years from the Central Council Annual Conference in May 2017 to be held in Edinburgh.
There were moves towards “Change” at the recent C.C.C.B.R. annual conference in Portsmouth. So, a really good opportunity here for some of us to mould the future of ringing.
