    Default 2020/2021 Nominations for Committee Members

    Hello GAGB Members:

    Nominations for the GAGB Committee for 2020/2021 will be accepted Monday-Friday, 16-20 November 2020. There are a total of eight Committee positions to fill. All GAGB active members at the start of nominations 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. Please note that the 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. The GAGB Constitution also states that any inactive member (a member that has not logged on to the forums for the past three years) may be nominated, but they will not be put forward to election unless they accept their nomination before the acceptance deadline of midnight Saturday, 21 November 2020.

    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.

    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, Saturday, 21 November 2020.

    After the nomination period closes, nominee manifestos, photos, and avatars will be posted in a locked ‘Candidates for 2020/2021 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 (2020/2021) - Q&A’ thread will be open during Sunday-Wednesday, 22-25 November, leading up to the election where Members may ask the Candidates about their GAGB goals. Incoming Committee Chair Arthur Griffins/Griff Grof is going to try something new to encourage participation by coordinating crossposting of the questions between the GAGB Facebook chat group and these GAGB Forums.

    If there are more than eight candidates, the Election for the Committee will be held during Thursday-Sunday, 26-29 November 2020, by Surveyhero electronic ballot. 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 surveyhero.com (which replaces surveymonkey.com for the ballot) domains so you receive election news and the link to your ballot.

    At your service,

    Michael Malvick/Ladybug Kids
    GAGB Returning Officer

    I would like to nominate Sharon (sharant) for the committee. I'm sure Griff Grof will appreciate having her on the committee still to support him during his first year as Chair.

    Good evening...
    thank you to the nomination and seconding. I have given it a lot of thought this year as it has been a testing time for many of us. I have just recently commenced work in a new and demanding role and feel I need to give myself a chance to settle into the role.

    So for this year I feel I regretfully need to withdraw from the committee. But I do hope to remain involved and return to the team in the near future.
    I hope that you understand and I wish Arthur and his team a positive and productive year. I know he will be great in his new role as chair and as I mentioned I look forward to being involved again in the near future.

    Kindest regards
    Matt / Maattmoo

    Thank you both for your nominations. Having being caching for almost nine years, I'm always looking for ways to enjoy this hobby and also make the hobby more enjoyable for everyone from caching veterans to newcomers to the game. I happily accept both of these nominations.

    I would like to thank TheStowMartians and BearAndRagged for nominating me. I have given it a great deal of thought. I have enjoyed my couple of years on the committee but I don't feel I can commit the time and effort needed at this time.

    I wish the 2021 committee all the best and I can help transition for the new GLAD manager

    Default Nominations Are Now Closed

    The period for nominating members to stand for election to the Committee and to second the nominations is now closed.

    Seven candidates accepted their nomination and one candidate has been nominated and seconded and needs to accept their nomination by midnight, Saturday, 21 November.

    The Committee election will not go to ballot because fewer than nine members were nominated and there are eight openings on the GAGB Committee.

    Geocaching Womble (Dominic Murray) - nominated, seconded, accepted
    BorderCaz (Caroline Turver) - nominated, seconded, accepted
    Sharant (Sharon Reid) - nominated, seconded, accepted

    Flowerpot_man, (Jonathan Howells) - nominated, seconded

    maattmoo (Matt Faulkner Collins) - nominated, seconded, declined
    Richt2000 (Richard Tucker) - nominated, seconded, declined

    Many thanks to those who participated in the process. There is a good mix of experienced and new members, which leaves the next year full of possibility.

    With Flowerpot_Man's/Jonathan Howells' acceptance, all GAGB Committee positions are filled. Because exactly eight candidates were nominated and accepted, the election will not go to ballot and I do not need the candidate's manifestos, photos, and avatars. Many thanks to those candidates who sent me their materials ahead of time to give me a head start on setting up the next steps of the process (Q&A and ballot).

    Geocaching Womble (Dominic Murray) - nominated, seconded, accepted
    BorderCaz (Caroline Turver) - nominated, seconded, accepted
    Sharant (Sharon Reid) - nominated, seconded, accepted
    jennthefunkyranger (Jenn Hill) - nominated, seconded, accepted
    mmmPIZZA (Alexander Buswell) - nominated, seconded, accepted
    Moria Crackers (Mel Read) - nominated, seconded, accepted
    Cabbage187 (Craig) - nominated, seconded, accepted
    Flowerpot_man, (Jonathan Howells) - nominated, seconded, accepted

    maattmoo (Matt Faulkner Collins) - nominated, seconded, declined
    Richt2000 (Richard Tucker) - nominated, seconded, declined

    I hope everyone has a healthy and safe 2021!
