I got this email today from the ELITE chair at the British Computer Society. ELITE is the IT director-level group of the BCS. They have a number of vacancies on their board. If you fancy putting your name forward for a place then just follow the instructions listed below… If you need a proposer and seconder then take a look at the ELITE website to check on the board members.
Dear Elite Member,
We have a number of vacancies on the Elite committee. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the work of Elite, and I urge anyone who
wants to become involved to put themselves forward for election. Any member of the Elite Group who is also a member of BCS can be nominated to stand for the position of Committee member.
A Proposer and a Seconder (who are also Elite members) will be required for the nomination to be entered into the election process.
A Committee member shall be elected to serve a maximum term of three years at which point they must stand down. They can offer themselves for re-election but may only serve a maximum of two consecutive terms.
If you would like to stand, then please e-mail a profile and photograph of yourself, no longer than 25 lines plus the names of your
proposer and seconder to Judith Taylor at email@example.com by Friday 5th February 2010.
Please note that HQ cannot provide you with any Elite membership details due to the DP Act.
We encourage members to attend meetings to meet with other Elite members so they could nominate a member wishing to stand for election.
If you would like to find out more about what is involved then I would be happy to have a talk.
