In accordance with Club Rule 31, The Chairs of the Golf, Green, House and Communications & PR Committees shall be nominated and if approved, elected by the Members, and shall each hold office for three years subject to the powers given to Council in Rule 27.   At the end of their three year term each of them shall be eligible for re-election for one year at a time up to a maximum of three years.  In the event of a Chair being vacated during the three year cycle for that position, the succeeding Chair shall be elected for the balance of the three year cycle.

The Chairs of the House and Green Committees have completed their current terms and will be vacant at the next AGM, to be held in March 2021.  Both chairs are standing down and do not intend seeking re-election. Members are invited to nominate candidates for these 2 posts in accordance with the Rules.

Seconders may send approval by email should they be unable to sign the nomination form in person to:

The Chair of Communications and PR has completed his 3 year term and will be standing down.  Council has decided that our Secretary Manager, Jo Lloyd, has the ability and experience to carry out this work and are proposing a change to the Rules at the AGM to dispense with the Communications and  PR Committee at the end of John Trott’s very successful three years as Chairman. The necessary changes to the Rules of the Club will be proposed at the AGM.  If the Members  agree to that proposal there will be no need to appoint a new Chair of that Committee.

The Rules require that at least one month prior to the final date for nomination, written notice must be sent out to Members enquiring of their willingness to stand for such elections.  The final date for nomination under the Rules is 31st  December 2020.

If there is more than one candidate for each position there shall be a vote by Members entitled to vote at the Annual General Meeting.  Under Rule 21 Members not present but entitled to vote at the Meeting may send or hand their vote in writing to the Secretary/Manager to arrive not later than 5pm on the day which is two days earlier than the Meeting.
