Election of Members of the CAS Trust Board
Following the Rules of Charlton Supporters Society Limited (known as CAS Trust) three Directors of the Society are standing down at the Annual General Meeting to be held in the autumn. In accordance with the Rules the initial Directors have set up an Election Management Group to oversee the process.
The Election Management Group will consist of Paul Breen (chair), Richard Wiseman, and Mike Woodhouse.
Nominations are now invited for individuals willing to serve as Directors.
The Rules state that there shall be a Board of Directors comprising not less than 6 and not more than 10 persons. There will be up to seven vacancies on the Board to be elected.
Should there be fewer candidates than there are vacancies, there will not be a formal ballot of members but instead those people validly nominated will be put to the AGM. If a trust member has any query on this procedure, please contact Richard Wiseman – Society Secretary – (firstname.lastname@example.org).
People willing to contribute and serve on the board as a member must:
- a) be a fully paid up member of the Society
- b) be nominated by two fully paid-up members of the Society.
A nomination form will be supplied by the Trust Secretary on request. The form must be completed and sent back to the Secretary by no later than Friday 30th September 2016. The form should either be sent electronically to email@example.com or by post to The Secretary, CAS Trust, 83 Heathwood Gardens, London SE7 8ET. The form must have the names of two members who are nominating the candidate for election. The Secretary will then contact the nominating members to confirm their nomination. All candidates must submit with their nominations a written statement of no less than 100 words and no more than 500 words in support of their nomination.
The Secretary will issue postal ballot papers and copies of the candidates’ statements if there are more candidates than number of vacant seats. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions relating to this process.
