4th May '08AGM and electionsby bjg
The following notice is from the secretary. The only candidate in the KSS by-election is Sonya Milanova. Please visit the elections page for further details.

1. AGM

An Annual General Meeting of the club will be held at 7.30 p.m on Sunday 11 May, in the Old Combination Room. The Meeting is open to all members of the club. The officers of the club will give short reports about their activities, and we will discuss and vote on any motions that have been submitted. Any member of the club may submit a motion for the AGM. To do this, please send the text of the motion, along with information on who is proposing and seconding it, to me no less than four days in advance. Attendance at the AGM is especially recommended for those who are considering standing for election to the committee.

2. Special Election - KSS

Hannah Jackson has resigned from her position as KSS, which means this position is now vacant. A special election for the post will be held at the AGM. Candidates interested in applying should submit a manifesto to me by this Sunday 4 May. If you would like more information about the role of KSS, please contact me or Harriet Booker. The primary duty of the new KSS will be to organise this term's bop, so this should be perfectly compatible with exams.

3. General Elections

General elections for next year's committee will take place at 7.30 p.m. on Sunday 18 May, in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre. All candidates will be asked to hold a short speech and answer questions from the floor. Voting will be by secret ballot. If you are interested in running for any position on next year's committee, feel free to contact the current incumbent (a list can be found here). For more information about the duties of the different committee members, please consult the club's constitution (available here).

In order to put yourself forward as a candidate for election, you must submit a manifesto to me no less than a week before the elections. These manifestos must be proposed and seconded by two other members of the club. For examples of past years' manifestos, see here.

All full members of the club who have rowed in at least two of the past three terms (including this one) may vote in the elections. Members who want to vote but cannot attend the elections in person may nominate another member to vote for them. Please consult the constitution for details on how to do this.

Please note that candidates for the Overall Captaincy must also run for the position of either Men's Captain or Women's Captain. Also note that it is possible to run for the position of Safety Officer in conjunction with any other committee position.

Immediately after the elections, I will hold a college bill surgery in the Winstanley. If you have questions about the boat club charges on your college bill, or if you want to see a breakdown of the costs you have incurred, please talk to me then.

Any questions, get in touch.
