Elections G-I-N Board 2012
This is the time of the year when G-I-N prepares for elections. We are keen to further increase participation and are therefore beginning to start reminding of the process and giving the outline of the timetable earlier than previously. The Board, as always, ensures that Scottish Charity rules are followed. Please find more information on the composition of the G-I-N Board of Trustees on the website www.g-i-n.net/about-g-i-n/g-i-n-board-oftrustees. The actual election process will start in May.
Please do not hesitate to ask about practical matters firstname.lastname@example.org or contact any of the members of the Board!
Nomination & Voting process
- The first step in the election process is the nomination of potential Trustees
- Nomination of any potential Organisational Trustee. Nominees will then be asked to provide a short statement and picture that will be use for the election round.
- All individual members are invited to express their interest for the position of Individual Trustee. Expression of interest must be in writing using the relevant candidate form and include a statement of up to 250 words.
Following the elections
The new G-I-N Board discusses co-options of additional Trustees. Co-option is usually decided to ensure good geographical representation and/or to provide the Board with additional, relevant, expertise. Note: unsuccessful Trustee candidates cannot be co-opted to the Board.
We want to encourage you to start thinking about potential candidates for the Board of Trustees. You can also start discussing this with colleagues to ensure that you are ready when the process starts.
