NOMINATIONS FOR ELECTIONS TO SaRS COUNCIL 2020
by Jacqueline Ward on Tuesday, 14th July 2020 at 1:02pm
Elections will be held for Council Members to take office from the end of the Annual General Meeting, which will be held on Tuesday 24th November 2020 at by Zoom meeting online. Please check the website www.sars.org.uk and the newsletter for timings.
The election procedure will follow the By-laws which are available on the home page of the SaRS website under the ‘The Society’ tab (please see https://www.sars.org.uk/bylaws-code-of-conduct-and-disciplinary-procedure/)
Nominations are required for vacancies arising among Corporate Members of the Council due to retirements by rotation. Nominees should be proposed and seconded by Corporate Members. Retiring members of Council who are willing to serve a further term require nomination by the same process. Please note that:
- Nominees can nominate themselves and in this case they must obtain a proposer and seconder as above
- Nominations can be made by another and in this case they must let the nominee know and together find a seconder (as the other person is proposing).
- You will be standing for election – nomination does not ensure a place on Council, this is dependent on the number of vacant places and the number of nominations – please see ballot procedure below.
If you have any questions about the nomination procedure, the bylaws or any aspect of the Council election procedure please get in touch – we are happy to help.
Forms completed incorrectly or arriving late will be counted as invalid. Please return the completed form(s) by 29th September 2020. Nominees are asked to submit a brief biography with the nomination form.
If required there will be a postal ballot, and ballot papers will be sent to eligible voters. Completed ballot papers must be received by the Secretary not later than the day before the Annual General Meeting.
