Please don't see this as me being negative, rather me trying to help make this election legal as per our constitution.
As per the constitution you need 8 weeks notice to run an election. At the previous meeting it said the next meeting is the next meeting is 26th of May. If the meeting is still 26th May then this election should've started the 30th of March.
7.4. The Nomination process will start 8 weeks before the next AGM(in this case 5.11.1) meeting and last for 4 weeks. This process will be run on the group’s website.
Another constitution law
5.11. Committee Resignations
5.11.1. In the event of a committee member, excluding chairman, resigning, the committee shall offer the open position(s) for election at the next quarterly general meeting.
If you guys decide to move the GM to make the election legit, then you need to have wuggers be able to run for Vice Chairman as well.
My point is there can be no election on the 26th May as per the constitution and you can't run and election for the position you feel needs to be filled. This is the two options that I see that can work.
- Move the awards GM to 2nd June and run election for both available positions.
- Appointment assistants or an assistant that can help the committee but they have no vote in matters that needs voting( advantage of this is you done need a 8 week waiting period)
5.3. The Committee may co-opt other members as deemed necessary to fulfil the purpose of the Group. These members will not be eligible to vote in committee decisions and votes.
