Board Nominees to Provide:

We will ask nominees to provide a no more than 300 word ‘biography’ and digital photo (before the close of nominations) to have posted on MHCN’s website from Monday 19th October to inform members about candidates. Biographies and photos received later will be posted as soon as possible, but late provision to MHCN may impact the candidate’s vote (and MHCN will not be responsible for that).

Voting at the AGM

If we receive more nominations than there are available Board positions, voting will take place during the AGM on the 19th November. If you want to vote for the Board positions, you must be present at the AGM. Voting will take place via an online survey using Survey Monkey sent to Members who register attendance at the meeting. The Returning Officer (RO) will confirm the election of the Board positions once the voting is complete. Members of MHCN are the only individuals able to vote for the Board positions. The link to vote will only be sent to confirmed Members during the AGM via email and private chat on ZOOM. The Business and Organisational Support Services Manager will compare the Membership list to those attending the AGM to confirm.
