Nominations received by the Secretary prior to the close of nominations. The "checked" column indicates that, as required by the Rules:

  • There are two nominators, both current financial members
  • The nominee is a current financial member
  • The nominee has accepted the nomination

As no position received more than one nomination, no elections were required. Thus the following people will be declared elected at the AGM.

Three vacancies - all ordinary committee positions - remain. Under the Rules, the AGM can fill these positions from the floor, or they can be left vacant for the Committee to co-opt under Rule 21(4).
