How do I Become a Member of the Management Committee
To become a member of the Management Committee you must firstly become a General Member of the Association as detailed above.
The usual way to become a member of the Management Committee is to be elected at the AGM which takes place every September. To stand for election you need to fill out a nomination form and return it to the office no later than 7 days prior to the AGM. At the AGM your nomination will be raised. If there are more nominations than available places then there will be an election and all the members present will vote for each person, and the one with most votes will be elected.
Alternatively, if you wish to join the Management Committee during the year you can be invited on to fill any 'casual vacancies' that exist. However, you would then need to be formally elected at the next AGM.
Finally, the Management Committee may ask to co-opt you on to the Committee if they felt you had a specific set of skills or knowledge that could contribute to the running of the Association.
