    Default 2023/2024 Nominations for Committee Members

    Hello GAGB Members:


    Nominations for the GAGB Committee for 2023/2024 will be accepted Wednesday-Sunday, 15-19,
    November 2023. 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 "6c. 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 Monday, 20 November 2023.


    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,
    Patricia Elkins (MsPatt), GAGB Independent Returning Officer
    (MsPatt1027@gmail.com) by midnight, Monday, 20 November 2023.


    After the nomination period closes, nominee manifestos, photos, and avatars will be posted in a
    locked ‘Candidates for 2023/2024 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 (2023/2024) - Q&A’ thread will be open during Tuesday- Friday, 21-24 November 2023, leading up to the election where Members may ask the
    Candidates about their GAGB goals.
    If there are more than eight candidates, the Election for the Committee will be held
    during Saterday-Tuesday, 25-28 November 2023, by SurveyHero electronic ballot. More
    information about the annual elections can be found in the GAGB Constitution (Section Q)
    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 gagb.org.uk and surveyhero.com domains
    so you receive election news and the link to your ballot.


    At your service,
    MsPatt
    Patricia Elkins
    GAGB Independent Returning Officer

    Good afternoon. I would like to nominate/second nominate the following 6 please.

    Paul Bevan (big eddie) - Paul has done some amazing work in various roles since joining the committee, and I would like to second nominate him.

    Chris Carpenter (Saza36) - I believe Chris would bring an amazing amount of knowledge to the committee. I would like to second nominate him.

    Lewis Grant (Neville_Dog_N_Humans) - Lewis has shown huge commitment in a short space of time, long may he continue.

    Chris Warren (Stoke Bunnies) - Chris is very forthcoming, and very helpful and responsive. I would like to second nominate him.

    Joe Mitchell - (Joe222s) - Joe has offered an awful lot of commitment to her role, and I hope she stays on the committee.

    Caz Turver - (Border Caz) - Caz has done an outstanding job since being on the committee, and deserves to remain on it.



    Thank you.
