2018 COUNCIL AND PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS. At our February 2018 branch meeting, a motion was passed which agreed that the branch will a) consider requests for nomination or support from any candidate for a General Council seat and b) do likewise for any Presidential candidate, although the branch will ultimately choose only one Presidential candidate to support.
Candidates for General Council seats will be welcome to speak, or have a statement read, at a branch meeting, as long as they have asked to be put on the agenda of the meeting a minimum of 7 days beforehand, as per the rules.
We are planning to decide which Presidential candidate to support (if asked) at our May branch meeting - Wed 9th May - ie the first meeting after nominations close.
