If you've joined GAGB since our annual elections were announced at the end of September and before Wednesday this week, you'll be a non-voting member, as under our constitution members who join after an election is announced are not allowed to vote in it.

Now that that's all over, you can become a full voting member. If you've posted in these forums you can check your status by looking under your user name to the left of your post. You'll either show as Member (non-voting) or as Member, and if the latter then you're a full voting member.

You can also check your status here and change it if necessary. We have had a few problems with the page, so if the link doesn't work for you or if you're unable to change your status please contact me through my profile.

Bill, Chairman GAGB
