Nominations for Trustees
As both a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee, Gay Outdoor Club is run by its trustees. The trustees are elected in full at the AGM each year, and any club member is entitled to stand for election. There are 12 vacancies.
Nominations are now invited. If there are more than six nominees, (the minimum number of trustees that we are allowed to have) a ballot will be held at the AGM at Swansea on Saturday 27th July 2019 (with postal and electronic voting available as in previous years).
If there are between six and twelve nominees, a nominee who receives the support of more than half the members who vote will be elected. If there are more than twelve nominees, the twelve who receive the largest number of votes will be elected.
All nominations are for the role of trustee. There are no separate elections for the roles of chairman, secretary or treasurer – these roles are appointed by the trustees from among their number once they are in post.
A candidate requires one proposer and one seconder. All three individuals must be members of the club.
Resolutions for the Annual General Meeting
Any club member can propose a resolution for debate at the AGM, provided that he or she has the support of eight other members. Any resolutions for debate at Swansea on 27th July should be submitted to me on the form below. Such resolutions will be debated together with any resolutions submitted by the trustees.
Completed nomination and resolution forms should be sent to me to arrive no later than Monday 3rd June 2019.
Nomination and resolution forms can be sent by email to: [email protected] .
If you are sending a form by email, please remember to put GOC AGM in the email title.
