    The annual GAGB elections for Committee members and for Chairman will be held in November.

    The election for Chairman will begin at midnight on Sunday 4th November and end at midnight on Sunday 11th November.

    The election for Committee members will begin at midnight on Tuesday 13th November and end at midnight on Tuesday 20th November.

    Nominations are now open for the post of Chairman and for the posts of Committee members. Nominations will close at midnight exactly seven days before the start of the relevant election.

    Nominations can be made in this thread, by sending them directly to me through my GAGB profile, or by emailing me at billd @ gagb.org.uk (without the spaces). Please remember to state whether your nomination is for Chairman or Committee member. You are entitled to nominate the same person for Chairman and for the Committee. Each nomination needs to be seconded.

    Only full members of GAGB are eligible to vote.

    You'll need to be a "Member", "Founding Member", or "Committee Member" to vote.

    There is a page on GAGB's website where you can check for yourself, and if you're showing as a "Member (Lapsed)" or a "Member (non-voting)" you can make yourself a full voting member. You can also choose to make yourself a non-voting member or end your membership of GAGB on the page. The options you'll see on the page will vary depending on which category you're in.

    The page is here.

    Members joining after the time and date of this post are not entitled to vote under GAGB's constitution.

    IMPORTANT: Voting will be by email to an independent non-UK returning officer (more details in a separate thread). You will need to vote using the email address you've registered with GAGB (for validation purposes). Please check that you have an up-to-date address registered, and if you haven't then amend it. You can do that on the same page where you can check your membership (link above).

    If you want to discuss anything related to the nominations or elections please start a separate thread in this forum. This thread is for nominations and seconding only. Thanks.

    Hmm, it's working for me - I'll get our webmasters to look at it. In the meantime any non-voting or lapsed members can contact me and I'll correct things for them. You can see what sort of membership you have by looking below your name in your posts in the forums. You can check what your registered email address is by clicking on "My Controls" near the top right of forum pages.

    Thanks for that - it's evidently working for at least some ordinary members. As the page is dynamic, and different depending on your membership, I'd wondered if it might only have been working for some groups and not for others, e.g. working for committee members and not for anyone else or somesuch.

    I wish to be a full voting member of GAGB.
    link on the page. As I'm shown as being a Member I presume I'm a voting Member so this link would not be valid.
