Following my letter of 10th August outlining the election process for the UK chapter we have had a number of requests from members for more time for nominating so we have decided to extend the period of the election to give everyone a chance to nominate themselves or others and also to give more time for voting.
The new election timetable therefore is as follows.
September 3rd Members meeting at the London Canal Museum as previously arranged to learn more about SCAE strategy and how it affects the UK chapter and to meet members of the Membership committee and SCAE Executive.
There will now be no vote at this meeting.
September 15th New date for closing of nominations.
September 30th Voting papers sent out.
October 13th Closing date for election.
October 25th New UK National Committee formed.
I apologise for any confusion that these changed plans may cause but as this is the first chapter election under our new structure, and because the UK is one of SCAE’s most important chapters, we want the process to be to take place with complete transparency, integrity and clarity. We are very encouraged by the numbers of members who are indicating that they are willing to be involved in the future of SCAE and the UK chapter.
Please do not hesitate to contact Jayne or myself if you have any further questions and confirm if you will be attending on 3rd September.
Executive Director, SCAE
