Hello GAGB Members:

Nominations for GAGB Committee for 2018/2019 will be accepted Thursday-Sunday, 15-18 November 2018.

All GAGB active members at the start of nominations are eligible to nominate another member or second a nomination. Members who have been nominated and seconded are asked to accept or decline their nomination in this thread. Please note that the recently revised GAGB Constitution states that "5c. Current Executive Members and the Chair shall not take part in nominations, however they may be nominated and may accept the nominations."

This means none of the current Committee members may make a nomination or second a nomination. However, non-Committee members may nominate a standing Committee member or second the Committee member's nomination.

Another change to the GAGB Constitution is that any inactive member (a member that has not logged on to the forums for the past three years) may be nominated, but they will not be put forward to election unless they accept their nomination before the acceptance deadline of Wednesday, 21 November 2018.

This thread will be closed at the end of the nominations period and anyone who has not been seconded and accepted during this period will not be considered as a candidate for election.

The Election for the Committee will be held during Monday-Friday, 26-30 November 2018.

Candidates for the Committee are requested to send their manifesto, photo (passport style, I can crop the photo for you if you need help) and geocaching avatar (if you have one) to me, Michael Malvick (Ladybug Kids), GAGB Independent Returning Officer (ladybugs@geocachealaska.org) by midnight, Wednesday, 21 November 2018.

After the nomination period closes, nominee manifestos, photos, and avatars will be posted in a locked ‘Candidates for 2018/2019 Committee Elections' thread as well as on the ballot so you may read about why each candidate is standing for election and the skills they will bring to the Committee if elected.

A ‘Committee Candidates (2018/2019) - Q&A’ thread will be open during 22-25 November leading up to the election where Members may ask the Candidates about their GAGB goals.

More information about the annual elections can be found in the GAGB Constitution (Section N) (https://www.gagb.org.uk/constitution.php).

In the meantime, it is important that you work with your internet service provider (ISP) and set your e-mail filters to white list e-mails coming from the gagb.org.uk, geocachealaska.org and surveymonkey.com domains so you receive election news and ballots.

At your service,

Michael Malvick/Ladybug Kids
GAGB Returning Officer

Note: This thread was locked when created and will be reopened soon after 0001, 15 November.

I would like to thank BaCas and Bear and Ragged for my nomination and second-ing. However I'm going to have to decline the offer at this point.
I feel it would be foolish for me to possibly accept a role when I do not understand what is involved with it, nor have knowledge as to the time commitment it would require.

However I do wish all the best to those who are accepting their positions on to the committee.
