The NZLARPs South Island branch is holding its AGM on October 11th 2017. More information is available here. Part of the business of the AGM is to elect a committee for the following year. This thread will collect the nominations for committee.
The deadline for nominations is October 4th 2017 to allow time for email voting. Information on electronic votes will be distributed via email 7 days before the AGM.
Every candidate for the committee must be proposed and seconded by different members (i.e. you can’t nominate someone and then second yourself), but the nominee themselves does not need to be a member at the time of nomination (but must be a member by the AGM - I will contact any non-member nominees with information on how to join). If you are unsure on your membership status, you can either email email@example.com or check it at http://nzlarps.org/. As a lot of memberships come due around AGM time, now is a good time to check!
Nominations can be made by posting in the thread below, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Any emailed nominations will be posted here. All nominations will be collected in a comment that I will update as they come in.
