    As we are getting nominations for chir on another thread would it not be a good idea to start collecting nominations for the other comittee places now? or is there a reason why they can't all be done at the same time ?

    :unsure: Just wundering? :unsure:

    Reckon you've been bugging our office or something.

    We have been discussing this and had already decided that there is little to stop us doing this and would put it before the rest of the committee.

    The only possible small issue is that we might have to edit the list after the poll for the chair.

    Not wanting to double post I&#39;ve put my nomination for committee member in the other thread.

    Update: Just realised this was incorrect so have added my nomination below. Sorry guys & gals.

    <hoping this is the right place for this post>
    Hmmm,

    if there are 5 posts available then I would like to nominate the following people if they are prepared to stand:
    • Moss da Boss - who has time and again earned his place at the helm through some very stormy waters.
    • The Hornet - If anyone knows about placing and finding it&#39;s this man.
    • The Bramblers - People who really know how to get things done&#33;
    • Teasel - Someone who has a proven record of dealing proactivly and succesfully with Groundspeak.
    • DodgyDavid - an honerable chap to represent the ordinary "cacher on the street".

    Having just tried to nominate a "general" committee member in the wrong thread I&#39;ll try again here.

    I would like to nominate a guy who has been in the game a long time now. Someone who has contributed an enormous amount of his own time already and who has set up an unrivalled facility to help all UK cachers completely free of charge. Someone who&#39;s website has the recognition of Groundspeak/GC.COM. The only downside is that he comes from "toop north" but you can&#39;t have everything I suppose .

    Of course I&#39;m talking about Mark - The Cat .

    p.s. I&#39;d be happy with 4 of Chris&#39; nominations, can&#39;t comment about one guy though (handsome and debonair though he may be ).

    My nominations for committee positions:
    • Moss Trooper
    • Richard and Beth
    • El10t
    • Postie
    • Mark (The Cat)
    • The Bramblers

    Perm any 5 out of 6, and away you go...

    If any of them decide not to run, that&#39;ll still leave me a chance of getting the names in.

    Cheers,
    Derek

    Seconded&#33;

    Whilst GeocacheUK is perhaps the most visible of Mark&#39;s additions to geocaching, he has made many other contributions too, ranging from his famous Fox Hunts for Children in Need and the Southern Cache Bash, to his recent assistance with the HCC event.

    But the skills which will make him invaluable to the GAGB committee are those which he does not bring attention to. He has already gained approval from both Rangers and Councils alike for his personal caches, and continues to promote geocaching to both councils and national landowners. He has not sought public acclaim by writing about these discussions in the forums, nor did he halt his efforts during the recent "troubles", when some people were giving G:UK a particularly hard time.

    He has given, and continues to give a lot of time to geocaching and has had numerous successes (and I&#39;m not talking about finding plastic boxes&#33. I&#39;m sure this will continue whether or not he gets a place on the GAGB committee, but I feel the opportunity of having Mark represent GAGB to landowners is too good to miss&#33;

    Thanks for the nomination.

    However I&#39;m afraid following the recent death of our vicar in Finchampstead we&#39;ll be busy with extra things at the church for the next 6-12 months until a new priest is appointed. So I&#39;m afraid we wouldn&#39;t be able to promise to give the GAGB the time it deserves. We will still be around, but we would rather not serve on the committee this year.

    Regards,

    Richard

    Thanks for that. I did read that on a recent post elsewhere; as a result my nominations for committee positions are now:
    • Moss Trooper
    • El10t
    • Postie
    • Mark (The Cat)
    • The Bramblers

    Well what can I say? I would of course be willing to stand forelection to the committee of GAGB. I would like to thank those that nominated me and hope that if elected I can contribute to the success of GAGB. I can understand that there might be a few that think that running GC:UK would cause a conflict of interest. All I can say is it is just not the case. The fact that I run a website should not cause problems. I am sure that if the members of GAGB think it will then I will not get elected. One last thing if the membership of GAGB donít think I am the person they need for one of the committee places so be it. But rest assured I will not take my bat home and close down GC:UK that is bigger than me and will run even when I have gone.

    Well, I&#39;ve met only a handful of other cachers so I&#39;m not in much of a position to nominate. If anyone actually seeks nomination, perhaps they should say so and offer some sort of manifesto

    But I would like to second the nomination of Mark (TheCat). Leaving off my G:UK Forum moderator&#39;s hat while here, and speaking as a simple cacher, I&#39;d like to say how surprised I was that no-one from G:UK was invited to participate in the formation of GAGB. If he&#39;s willing, I&#39;m sure Mark has a lot more to offer GAGB, its members and geocaching in the UK.

    I&#39;d also like to second the nomination of The Bramblers. I&#39;ve not met them but their quiet contribution and competence is self-evident.

    Can I ask "admin" how we are supposed to make nominations for committee when no one but the caretaker "committee" knows who the members of the Association are? :unsure:

    Well, I&#39;m not "admin", but I&#39;d question whether someone who&#39;s not open about their membership of GAGB, and who does not contribute to the forums, would be an appropriate person to be nominated...

    Perhaps, between nominations closing and the poll opening, we could have some sort of "hustings" forum for the nominated people to explain, to new and experienced cachers alike, who they are and what they would contribute to the committee?

    Hi Derek,

    I&#39;m truely flattered by being included in your nomination list but unfortunately I would prefer not to stand for election.

    There are lots of decent cachers around with real vision in seeing GAGB through to where it should be going, who understand exactly what is was set up for and who have unbounded enthusiasm for the good of the organisation (despite the frequent unwarranted bashing we seem to get) who are far better placed to be on the committee than me.

    Besides which I have a 2 and a quarter year old son and so free time for caching (and anything else) is pretty much non-existant
