Every two years, the Branch elect new Officers and Committee. The Model Branch Constitution states:
4.5 Branch Election Procedures
Branches shall establish rules governing the conduct of the elections to ensure equality of treatment for all candidates. These shall be incorporated into the branch constitution/branch rules and shall be published to the membership. All Officership Elections in Branches shall be held as individual membership ballots which may only be undertaken via the post, email and workplaces.
As workplaces within the Branch are too diverse, this option is not available. Therefore, the options will be restricted to email and through the postal network.
To assist Branch Members nominate potential Officers and Committee Members, an electronic method has been developed to compliment the process.
To make a nomination, you can use any of the three methods below
- Postal: A form can be downloaded, filled in, signed and posted to the Branch Office.
- Email: Use the pro-forma available here or send an email using the following wording to firstname.lastname@example.org
