    Default Nominations for Committee Members 2015/2016

    Hello GAGB Members:

    Nominations for GAGB Committee for 2015/2016 will be accepted Friday-Monday, 6-9 November 2015.

    All GAGB members who joined before 1 October 2015 are eligible to nominate another member or second a nomination. Members who have been nominated and seconded are asked to accept or decline their nomination in this thread.

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

    The Election for the Committee will be held during Tuesday-Sunday, 17-22, November 2015.

    Candidates for the Committee are requested to send their manifesto, photo (passport style, I can crop the photo for you if you need help) and geocaching avatar (if they have one) to me, Michael Malvick (Ladybug Kids), GAGB Independent Returning Officer (
    ladybugs@geocachealaska.org) by midnight, Tuesday, 10 November 2015.

    After the nomination period has closed, nominee manifestos, photos, and avatars will be posted in a locked ‘Candidates for 2015/2016 Committee Elections’ thread as well as 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.

    A ‘Committee Candidates (2015/2016) - Q&A thread will be open during the week leading up to the election where Members may ask the Candidates about their GAGB goals.

    More information about the annual elections can be found in
    the GAGB Constitution (Section N) and Seeker Issue 26.

    In the meantime, it is critical that you work with your internet service provider (ISP) to white list e-mails coming from the gagb.org.uk, geocachealaska.org and surveymonkey.com domains so you receive election news and ballots.

    At your service,

    Michael Malvick/Ladybug Kids
    GAGB Returning Officer

    There are eight committee seats available, so there is still plenty of room for interested parties to step up and serve GAGB at another level.

    Nominees are reminded to send me their manifestoes, passport-type photos (I can do the photo cropping if you need help with that), and avatar. The materials should be sent to ladybugs at geocachealaska dot org. Please include "GAGB" in the subject line.

    Nominations close at midnight, Monday, 9 November.

    Thank you Rich! I feel very honoured with the nomination, however I feel I must decline this time as I feel I need to gain a bit more experience before taking on such a responsible role.

    I second Cornell Finch - I have not discussed it with him either as yet.

    Kim - for clarity, It might be best if you write 'I accept' in the body of your post. I know you have put it in the 'title box' but that can't be seen if viewing the forums from all apps. (I can see your acceptance from a web browser, but not from Tapatalk).

    Thanks For the nomination Richard but I am afraid I must decline. I simply don't have the time to dedicate to the GAGB that the committee needs.

    I will of course support in any way I can though.

    Sorry to disappoint and thanks for thinking of me!

    Yes, my browser and the GAGB forums had a severe failure to communicate yesterday. I see a lot more posts above my summary post this morning than I saw yesterday.

    I'll double check Jen's post of this morning and verify we collectively did not miss anyone.

    Post #35 by Maple Leaf/Jen is verified correct.

    So far, six candidates have accepted their nomination. The Committee has eights plus the Chair, so there room for two more candidates before a ballot will be required.

    Thanks Lilian and Dave for the nomination and seconding, but I'm also going to decline.

    I've done three years and I just haven't got the time to give to do a proper job. The last thing I want to do is not have the time to do a proper job.

    Jackie. I wish you would stay on. Experience counts for a lot and so does competence. You have both :-D

    I humbly accept the nomination. I think gagb can do so much. I hope I can help...
