    Default Nominations for Committee Members 2017/2018

    Hello GAGB Members:

    Nominations for GAGB Committee for 2017/2018 will be accepted Thursday-Monday, 9-13 November 2017.

    All GAGB members who joined before 1 October 2017 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, 21-26 November 2017.

    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 you have one) to me, Michael Malvick (Ladybug Kids), GAGB Independent Returning Officer (
    ladybugs@geocachealaska.org) by midnight, Tuesday, 14 November 2017.

    After the nomination period closes, nominee manifestos, photos, and avatars will be posted in a locked ‘Candidates for 2017/2018 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 will bring to the Committee if elected.

    A ‘Committee Candidates (2017/2018) - 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).

    In the meantime, it is important that you work with your internet service provider (ISP) and set your e-mail filters 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/LadybugKids
    GAGB Returning Officer

    Note: This thread was locked when created and will be reopened on 9 November.

    *

    *Still requires a second because Merstham Mafia was not an active member of GAGB of record as of 1 October 2017.

    There are a total of eight Committee seats available, so there is plenty of opportunity to get involved. If eight or fewer Members stand for election, no balloting will occur. If nine or more Members stand, a SurveyMonkey ballot will be distributed to members of record as of 1 October 2017.

    With about three hours to go before the nominating period closes, there are seven candidates who have completed the process and four candidates who have been nominated and seconded, but need to accept their nomination. Those who have nominated or seconded a candidate should let their candidate know they need to log into these forums and accept or decline their nomination.

    If more than one more candidate accepts their nomination, there will be an election, so candidates should be thinking about their manifestoes and compiling their photos and avatars.
