Thursday 8 August 2019 – Election of directors
With the closure of the nomination process for Directors, I can advise we have received four (4) nominations for Director of WSC. They are (alphabetically):
- Irene Ellis
- Warren Sare
- Jeremy Spear
- Diane Vukelic
As per the WSC constitution, 13.6 Transition (a) The terms of Elected Directors are to be staggered so that the term of two Elected Directors, as determined by a majority vote of the Board, expires at the 2016 AGM and at each subsequent AGM the terms of at least two Elected Directors expire.
The two directors who have resigned are:
- Diane Vukelic
- Rupert Henry (who was filling a casual vacancy due to the resignation of Ross Barratt in January 2019)
Hence the election will be for two (2) vacant positions on the WSC Board.
As per the Election notice, if a ballot is necessary, a list of nominations received will be made available to all eligible members and posted on the Club’s notice board. The ballot materials will be available to all eligible voters at Woollahra Sailing Club and completed onsite.
