The Constitution of the Trust provides for the Board to comprise not more than eight elected Directors. Of those, half are required to stand down each year. An election has to take place to appoint four Directors to bring the Board back up to its full strength. Those Directors standing down are eligible to stand for re-election. An Election Policy, which outlines how this process is to take place, was agreed at the Trust AGM on 21 July 2014.
Four of the Trust’s current elected directors have indicated that they will stand down. A nomination form is attached to this article upon which any Trust member may indicate their wish to be elected to the Board. Anyone doing so must also have their nomination formally supported by two other Trust members. Nominations must be received by the Trust, at the address given on the form, by no later than 17 September 2014.
If there are only four (or fewer) valid nominations, the election of those nominated will be put to the adjourned meeting of the Trust’s AGM on Monday 13 October 2014. If there are more than four, a ballot of Trust members will be held.
