If there were, say, 6 nominations for 4 vacancies, then the members would get to vote for 4 of the nominees of their choice.
Casual vacancies occur if a Board member resigns and in this instance a replacement would be co-opted by the Board for the balance of the term.
As far as I know, there is no age limit on nominees. Any financial member of the club is entitled to nominate.
This year there were 4 vacancies and only 4 nominations were received so no ballot required.


Thanks for the info Smokey. I am very surprised that there are not more people volunteering for the vacancies. I'm not the right person but I would have thought a few on this site me have stuck their hands up for the gig.


Some on here have stood for board elections and some on here have tried to stand for board elections but been discouraged or dissuaded from nominating.

2014 elections Len Gandini and Cathy VanderWeide stood. Both were defeated. Cathy replaced Rod Basell shortly after when he resigned from the board.

Smokey its a nice fairytale to believe you just rock up and grab a nomination form and off you go. It should be but its not that simple. I'll share my experience with you sometime which will give you an insight into how Clown Shoes Atkins runs the joint.

Firstly I stand corrected about the election. Although the result would not be surprising, I am sure the Board would have done all in their power to ensure victory to those they wanted.

Dazzler that is exactly what happens, good people are not given a fair go.
Anyone would need the resources and where with all to achieve it.

Dazz, I hear what you are saying and I do know of instances where prospective nominees have been given the run around and discouraged.
What I outlined was how it should happen. I wonder how far some discouraged people keep pushing hard for a nomination or do they just throw their hands in the air and walk away?

Surprises me that Len Gandini didn't get in back then. He certainly had my vote. I thought he would have been a shoe in.
