    Default GAGB Executive Committee (2015/2016) - Election dates

    2015/2016 GAGB Executive Committee elections

    All GAGB (forum) members prior to 1st October 2015 are eligible, and encouraged, to participate (stand, nominate or vote).

    There shall be two elections, first for the position of Chairman and then for the eight Committee Member posts.

    Nominations may be made in the relevant thread in this forum during the advertised nomination period. Each nomination must be seconded and accepted by the nominee within that same period in order to be valid. Nominee manifestos will then be posted in the GAGB forums and on the ballot so you may read about why each candidate is standing for election and the skills they would bring to the Committee if elected.

    Cut off date for being a GAGB member and able to stand, nominate or vote:
    Thursday 1st October 2015 (Constitution - section E2)

    Chairman elections

    Nominations for Chairman open: Weds 21st October 2015
    Close of nominations for Chairman: Sat 24th October 2015

    Where nominations exceed vacancies, election shall be by ballot and will be run by Michael Malvick (Ladybug Kids), who is returning as our Independent Returning Officer for the 6th year.

    Mike is currently serving as Treasurer of GeocacheAlaska!, the non-profit geocaching organization for the state of Alaska that fosters geocacher education and land manager advocacy. He is also a Volunteer Reviewer for Groundspeak, reviewing caches for Alaska and Hawaii as Greatland Reviewer and EarthCaches for Alaska, Hawaii and elsewhere as needed as GeoawareUSA4. He has also in the past reviewed EarthCaches in the UK. will again generate the ballot. This streamlines ballot counting and adds a layer of confidentiality between the Returning Officer and those who vote. You will be sent an e-mail with a unique link to the ballot, so please make sure your e-mail address on the GAGB forum (UserCP) is current.

    Ladybug Kids will make an announcement in this GAGB forum after the e-mails have gone out so you can check your spam filter, etc., in case you don't receive the link to the ballot.
