The 2014 UK-TUG AGM will be held on Saturday 29th November at 14:00. The
meeting will take place as part of the UK-TUG Speaker meeting at Trinity
College, Oxford, OX1 3BH. We hope that as members as possible will be
able to attend the AGM and the Speaker meeting.
Notice is hereby given for the following.
Election for Chair
The two-year term of office of the Chair, Simon Dales, finishes at the
end of the AGM. Anyone who wishes to stand should ask a member to
nominate them for the post: in case of difficulty, please approach the
Nominations should be sent to the Secretary by 23:59 on the 14th of November. The
candidate should also confirm that they are happy to stand, and may be
send a statement for circulation to members in support of their candidature.
If there is a contested election then there will be an electronic
ballot. Details of the candidates and supporting statements will be
circulated on Sunday 16th November and voting will close at 23:59 on
Thursday 27th November.
Elections for the committee
The term of all committee members expires at the end of the AGM (with
the exception of the Chair, as detailed above). Anyone who wishes to
stand should contact the Secretary at any time before the AGM. Most of
the business of the committee is carried out electronically, so a remote
location should be no barrier. The mechanism for nominations is similar
to that for Chair, with a nomination from a member along with
confirmation from the candidate, although there is no need to submit any
kind of statement.
Motions for the AGM
Any member may submit a motion to the AGM. Motions should be sent to the
Secretary, and should be received by 23:59
on Friday 14th November. Motions and supporting documentation will be
circulated on Sunday 16th November.
Voting on motions will be possible by proxy for members not able to
attend the AGM. Full details will be given with the motions when circulated.
We look forward to hearing from you!
