    Default 2018/2019 GAGB Chair Nominations

    Hello GAGB Members:

    The nomination period for the position of GAGB Chair for 2018/2019 is now open.

    Nominations will be accepted from 0:01 Thursday 1st November through to 23:59 Sunday, 4th November 2018 (4 days).

    All GAGB Association members (Founder, Friends & Individual Members) who joined before 1st October 2018, are eligible to stand, 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 Chair will be held during Sunday 11th November
    to Wednesday 14h November 2018.

    Candidates for the Chair position are requested to send their manifesto, photo (passport style), and geocaching avatar (if they have one) to Michael Malvick (Ladybug Kids), GAGB Independent Returning Officer (

    ), by midnight, Monday 5th November 2018.


    After the nomination period has closed nominee manifestos, photos, and avatars will be posted in a locked ‘Candidates for 2018/2019 Chair 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 ‘Chair Candidates (2018/2019) - Q&A’
    thread will be opened 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 meantime, it is important that you work with your internet service provider (ISP) to white list e-mails coming from the gagb.org.uk, gagb.co.uk, geocachealaska.org and surveymonkey.com domains so you receive election news and ballots.

    At your service,

    Hello GAGB Members:

    Nominations for the GAGB Committee are now being accepted via this thread. Please read the Original Post (OP) for details.

    The nominating period is Thursday-Sunday, 1-4 November 2018.

    Please note that the recently revised GAGB Constitution states that "5c. Current Executive Members and the Chair shall not take part in nominations, however they may be nominated and may accept the nominations."

    This means none of the current Committee members may make a nomination or second a nomination. However, non-Committee members may nominate a standing Committee member or second the Committee member's nomination.

    Another change to the GAGB Constitution is that any inactive member (a member that has not logged on to the forums for the past three years) cannot be nominated, but if they become active by logging in prior to 1 October before an election they may vote.

    2018/2019 GAGB Chairman Nominations are now closed.

    Sharon Reid/Sharant was the only candidate to be nominated and seconded for GAGB Chairman and she accepted the nomination.
    Because Sharon is standing unopposed, the election for Chairman will not go to ballot.

    Stay tuned for news in a new thread regarding thenominations for the 2018/2019 GAGB Committee, which will open on Thursday, 15 November 2018.

    There are slots for eight Committee Members, so please give serious consideration to whether you can spare a few hours a month to support geocaching at a higher level as a member of the GAGB Committee.

    This thread is now locked.
