    Thank you to everyone that participated in the GAGB Chair elections - I am delighted to be declared the GAGB Chair for 2012/2013. However, I now require an enthusiastic team to work along side me.

    There is more information about the elections in the September issue of Seeker ( issue 10)

    --------------------------------------------

    Nominations are now open for the committee elections.

    This is the timetable for committee elections:

    • Cut off date for being a GAGB member and able to vote: 1/10/12
    • Nominations for committee open: Thurs 8/11/12
    • Close of nominations: Thurs 15/11/12
    • Election of committee: Fri 23/11/12 – Thur 29/11/12


    Please make your nominations, second and accept/decline posts in THIS thread.

    Any GAGB member can nominate (multiple) candidates, which need to be seconded by a different GAGB member for that nomination to be validated. Candidates are requested to accept / decline those nominations in this thread.

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

    Candidates are asked to prepare a CV/manifesto (and photo/avatar).

    Please email your CV/manifesto to me (mapleleaf.geocaching@yahoo.co.uk) so that I can put them in the forum once the nomination period has closed. (Please DO NOT send photo/avatar to me)

    Please also send your CV/manifesto to the Returning Officer (ladybugs@geocachealaska.org) along with a photo +/- avatar so that he can prepare the ballot page in advance.

    As with the chairman elections, we will be using SurveyMonkey, so please ensure your email address is correct in your GAGB UserCP to ensure that you receive your ballot form once voting opens.
    The returning officer for this election will be Mike of "Ladybug Kids", who is Secretary of geocachealaska.org

    Although I haven't discussed it with him, I feel that Stephen McGeough (Bobo Frett) has just the right attributes for a role.

    I would like to nominate Mollyjak for a second term. She has worked hard for the GAGB during her first year as a committee member and I am sure that she would continue to do so if voted in for a second term.

    I would also like to nominate Jeff King (northking) for a position on the committee. He is an experienced cacher having placed numerous different types of caches over the last few years. He is also a retired police officer and his knowledge of the law would be a great asset to the GAGB

    I wish to nominate *geocass* (Cass Flowers), an existing Committee member with expertise in computery things. She has been an invaluable member of Committee.

    I greatly appreciate the confidence of others in my ability to work on the GAGB Committee, and I accept the nomination, which has been seconded.
