The Election of the Committee is being conducted this year by a combination of electronic voting and in-person voting at an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) on February 29th.
We would love new people to get involved and are particularly keen to have more diversity on the committee. We would also like volunteers to help take forward some of the ideas that came out of the recent survey. So if you have any questions or just want to understand more about what is involved, just get in touch with any of the current committee members (contacts are on the website). Being a committee member does require some commitment but is also fun and rewarding.
All plot-holders (both individual and joint plot-holders) are welcome to apply. We have put together ‘Job Descriptions’ for particular positions and there is also the option to stand as a committee member with no specific responsibilities.
The Committee positions are shown below. Details of what is involved is linked for each position below. You can stand for any position, whether an existing committee member is standing or not.

If you are interested in seeking election for any of these posts, please download this form (click here). Applicants need a seconder, another plot holder that supports them in their application. Once you have completed this, it has to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 23rd January.
For those not using email, copies of the documents will be available in the hut and application forms can be posted in the letterbox by the top gate (addressed to the Secretary).
All completed application forms will be made available to the wider membership and voting will then take place electronically and/or in person at a special EGM set for 27th February.
