    Default 2017/18 - Election dates?

    When are the election dates going to be posted?

    According to the GAGB Constitution (N2), they shall be posted no later than 1st October each year.

    Thanks Sharon, but looking at the dates, to keep to constitution I think you need another day between close of nominations and the start of the election period for the Chairman position (assuming you are going for a midnight close/open) ..... the Commitee is ok.

    I'll check with RO and the committee to move the dates 1 day earlier, but yes it needs a week between nomination and the election of a Chair. Nominations for Chairman open: Mon 23rd October 2017 and Close of nominations for Chairman: Thurs 26th October 2017 (4 days) and then that will meet the constitution rules.
