Branch Voting Recommendations
Clearly we are in unique and challenging times and whilst branches would normally arrange mandating meetings to decide which candidates to vote for in the respective elections we do not believe that this is either practical or necessary during the current crisis. Therefore, on this occasion this decision can be made by the Branch Committee and the decision subsequently notified to members of their branch accordingly.
The timetable for the election is:
Nominations open: 3 May 2022
Nominations close: 17 May 2002 (14:00)
Despatch ballot papers: 24 May 2022
Ballot closes: 7 June 2022 (14:00)
