Election for Board of Directors

by Team BV

Election for Board of Directors
Rule 17.3 of the Bowls Victoria Constitution requires that the positions held by two female Elected Directors (Marilla Rootsey and Lyn Baker) and two male Elected Directors (John Inglese and Kevin Pattison) shall be declared vacant at the Bowls Victoria Annual General Meeting to be held on Wednesday, 18 October 2017.
Rule 18(a) of the Constitution requires that I as Chief Executive call for nominations to fill these vacancies, and that the Chief Executive or his nominee shall act as the Returning Officer in the event that an election is required.
A Nomination Form is attached and further copies, if required, are available via the Bowls Victoria website www.bowlsvic.org.au
Nomination Forms are to be correctly completed and signed by affiliated members representing two different clubs and supported by written consent of the person being nominated. Rule 18(c) (i) & (ii) requires that completed Nomination Forms be returned to the Chief Executive no later than the date specified (as below). Under no circumstances will late nominations be accepted.
Assuming that the number of nominations received exceeds the number of vacancies an election must then be held. The timetable for the conduct of such election is as follows:
Friday, 16 June 2017 Nomination Forms distributed to clubs.
Friday, 28 July 2017 Nominations close at 4.30pm at Bowls Victoria.

Nominees must be affiliated members and must provide details confirming that they meet any qualifications set out in the Constitution from time to time – under rule 17.2(d).
Nominees may, at their discretion, enclose with their Nomination Form, a written outline of their education qualifications, previous business qualifications/background, community, sporting and/or IT experience.
This information will be distributed to clubs with the voting papers.
Yours sincerely
