Committee Nominations. At the AGM members will have the opportunity to elect the Officers and Committee to take the Society forward over the next twelve months.

A Nomination Form is attached at the end of this newsletter for your use. You can make up to 10 nominations but please remember that you MUST ask your nominee if they are willing to stand.

All nominees need to be nominated by at least two of the membership – the equivalent of a proposer and a seconder.

We would stress that nominees do not need to be expert birdwatchers but just to have a desire to help our Society.

Nominations are required for Secretary, Treasurer & the other seven members of the Committee. The following existing committee members have expressed their willingness to stand again – Sue Gale, David Gibbons, Ray Gribble, Alan Hughes, Lin Pateman (as Secretary), Martin Spriggs (as Treasurer)  Mary Walker and Keith Walker. Please note that they will still need to be nominated by members.

Nominations are not required for the President and Chairman as they were elected for two years in April 2017.

If we are over subscribed then a ballot will result. If we are under subscribed the new committee will have the right to co-opt committee members up to a maximum of ten.

All nominations must be sent to Lin Pateman (Secretary) at 4, Holt Road, Edgefield, Norfolk NR24 2RP or by email at or hand the completed form to her at one of our meetings by Monday 9th April 2018
