When are the election dates going to be posted?

According to the GAGB Constitution (https://www.gagb.org.uk/constitution.php) (N2), they shall be posted no later than 1st October each year.

Chairman Elections
Nominations for Chairman open: Tues 24th October 2017
Close of nominations for Chairman: Fri 27th October 2017 (4 days)
Election for Chairman: Fri 3rd Mon 6th November 2017 (4 days)

Committee Elections
Nominations for Committee open: Thurs 9th November 2017
Close of nominations for Committee: Mon 13th November 2017 (5 days)
Election of Committee: Tues 21st Sun 26th November 2017 (6 days)

Thanks Sharon, but looking at the dates, to keep to constitution I think you need another day between close of nominations and the start of the election period for the Chairman position (assuming you are going for a midnight close/open) ..... the Commitee is ok.

I'll check with RO and the committee to move the dates 1 day earlier, but yes it needs a week between nomination and the election of a Chair. Nominations for Chairman open: Mon 23rd October 2017 and Close of nominations for Chairman: Thurs 26th October 2017 (4 days) and then that will meet the constitution rules.
