NCISA Proxy voting

Recommended Posts

I have now been able to look into this issue further and it''s clear that, while there is nothing in the constitution that suggests proxy votes are allowed, there is nothing that categorically says that they can''t be. Given that we wish to expand membership both in the UK and elsewhere we recognise that we will need to establish a better voting system going forward, and, while we are limited in terms of what can be done prior to the AGM, we have, as a committee, agreed that we will allow proxy votes at this year''s AGM. These can be made via a specified proxy, or myself as Chairman. Proxy votes must be registered with Kathy at least 14 days before the AGM, in line with nominations for officers.

I have noted one or two slightly barbed references to our determination that NCISA, or whatever it becomes after the AGM, must be an open and transparent organisation which embraces rather than excludes. Hopefully this decision will be accepted as proof that we are remaining true to our principles.

Beausant,

 

A sensible and pragmatic decision which supports you intention to be seen to be transparent. Lets hope that you are supported in this decision by members using their proxy vote. I certainly will.

This seems a pragmatic solution to the issue until a new constitution is arrived at. I look forward to casting my proxy vote (unfortunately for some it seems it is wanted after all) via Beausant once the committee nominees and other voting issues are published.

Something you wrote? Funny you should bring your writing up, when I asked you about your writing it suddenly disappeared. Maybe it got shunted into a siding? Probably on the orders of the Fat Controller....

Now, who could that be....????

My Uncle used to make that joke when I was about 6. I thought it was funny then, 26 year old jokes tend to lose their comedic value though.

 

Still, I bet it raised a giggle with Pall.

Indeed, my Uncle worked out that by strategically placing an additional letter into my name, you could create two words that represented a receptacle for holding excrement. He was a teacher too. Perhaps it''s the institutionalisation.....

 

Looks like things will be changing, at the AGM by the sounds of it......[:''(]

[/quote]Seems strange you didn''t want a proxy vote to support your brother (Tangy) when he was standing for election to the committee at last years AGM.

As he was already on the committee I didn''t see the liklihood of him beinfg deselected. Good to see another of the Fantasy Four out and about, just needs PC Unpromotable now for a full house. Woof woof.
