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.
