TO CLUBS
in the Southern, Northern and Eastern Electorates please inform your members that the SAHPA is seeking nominations for the Committee of Management for such electorates. Nominations for election to the Committee of Management must be in writing and signed by the nominee and two other members of the said electorate. Nominations must be received by myself the General Secretary by the 23rd January 2018, up to two calendar months prior to the date of the Annual General Meeting which will be held on Monday 23rd March 2018. The Committee members that must retire at the AGM as their three year term has expired are Paul Springett (Southern) Phil Squire (Northern) and Tim Fawcett (Eastern). If there is more than one nominee in the same electorate as General Secretary I will send out ballot forms with the two or more Nominees on them to all members in that electorate. These forms must be returned by the 9th of March which follows the constitutional requirement of 14 clear days before the AGM. All retiring Members of the Committee of Management shall, following retirement from office, be eligible for re-election, regardless of how many terms of three years in office, the Member has held. Failing to receive any nominations in a particular electorate the COM will appoint a suitable member to that electorate.
