Submitted by JamesPatterson on Wed, 15/03/2017 - 10:17

Following the call for nominations in January OTnews inviting members to stand for vacant seats on Council, one nomination was received from Lyn Westcott for the seat of Council Member, Learning and Development Board which means that she is considered to be duly elected and will start a three-year term of office at the AGM on 20 June 2017. Congratulations to Lyn.

Two nomination forms have been received for the role of Chairman of Council and, therefore, a ballot will need to take place. Ballot papers will be sent to members in the UK at the end of March by ERS, the official ballot scrutineer. Ballot papers need to be returned to ERS by 28 April 2017. Please do use your democratic right and vote.

Unfortunately, no nominations were received for the seats of Council member, Northern Ireland Board; Council Member, Scottish Board and Council Member, Welsh Board. Therefore, casual members (serving for one year) will need to be appointed for these seats by Council.
