Nominations for the election of a President and two Councillors will take place at the Annual General Meeting in April. Nomination Forms are available from the Secretary and nominations should be sent on these or in the format required to the Secretary by 13 February 2002. Please submit the names and signatures of the nominee with a proposer and seconder, who should all be paid up members of the Branch. In the event of the Secretary receiving more nominations than vacancies there will be a postal ballot. The constitution states that ballot papers must be sent to all paid-up members, including a short biography (less than 200 words) of each nominee, by 13 March 2002. Ballot papers must be delivered to the Secretary not less than 10 days prior to the AGM. The result of the postal ballot will be determined by the method of Single Transferable Vote (as published by the Electoral Reform Society, 1976). The result of the election will be announced at the AGM to be held on Wednesday 10 April 2002 at 9 am.
