Nominations are now closed and we have a grand total of eleven candidates for the UKBGF Board for 2017-8. We are now asking you, the members, to select the seven who will make up the Board.
You will find the candidates, together with their answers to the questions we asked them all here: http://ukbgf.com/2016-election-manifestos/ – if you wish to ask them any further questions, then feel free to use the comments section on this page.
Members will shortly be emailed a link to the SurveyMonkey page where you can submit your votes. If you have unsubscribed from the members’ mailing list or by any chance the email doesn’t arrive by the end of Monday 26th, please contact email@example.com and we will make sure one is sent to you.
The voting works the same as last time – you will be invited to rank your seven most preferred candidates in order. Your first choice receives 7 points, your second choice will receive six, and so on down to your last choice who gets a single point. The seven with the highest tallies of points will be elected. You must get your vote in by 14th October 2016, 6pm for it to be counted. Retiring Chair Sean Williams will be acting as election arbiter this time and will announce the results here as soon as possible after voting closes. Your votes will not be revealed to anyone.
Please do take the time to vote and use it carefully – you, the membership, will be helping to set the course for the UKBGF for the next couple of years.
