    Default GAGB annual elections

    GAGB's annual elections are due to take place in November.

    The election for the post of Chairman will begin at midnight on Sunday 9th and end at midnight on Sunday 16th.

    The election for the posts of Committee Members will begin at midnight on Tuesday 18th and end at midnight on Tuesday 25th.

    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 or by sending them directly to me through my GAGB profile. All nominations must be seconded, and accepted by the nominee.

    I'm pleased to be able to announce that Erik van Dyck (erik88l-r) of the Georgia Geocachers' Association has very kindly agreed to act as Returning Officer for our elections again. Many thanks, Erik!

    The current status:

    Committee:

    *mongoose39uk - proposed, seconded, accepted
    *StuartP - proposed, seconded, accepted

    When GAGB was originally set up I was one of the UK reviewers and as such I was invited to serve on the committee. After some thought I declined as I felt that the GAGB ought to be an independent body, not beholden to any particular listing site. As a representative of Groundspeak, if I served on the committee I foresaw possible conflicts of interest which would not be in GAGB's interest.

    I think that still holds true and despite the review team being otherwise excellently qualified, I question whether it would be appropriate for them to serve here.

    You just beat me to it. I think that the Hornet would make an ideal committee member due to his level headed approach to things and his immense experience in the hobby. As he is no longer "affiliated to t'other site" he's obvously got too much time on his hands now so perhaps the GAGB might be an avenue for him to be tied to a PC again.
