Notice for members to nominate candidates for election to the position of MRNSW Director

Members can now nominate potential candidates for election to the position of Director of Volunteer Marine Rescue NSW (MRNSW). 

Four vacancies
One General Director and three Regional Directors are to be elected at the MRNSW Annual General Meeting to be held on 29 November 2014.

The MRNSW Constitution states:
“At each annual general meeting there shall be an election for at least one General Director by the Members in accordance with the Rules and timetable determined by the Board” and “Members of each Region will elect a Regional Director in accordance with the Rules and timetable determined by the Board.”  

The Board has determined that there will be no change to the election timetable set at the inaugural MRNSW Annual General Meeting in 2010 for either the General or Regional Director positions due for election.

Consequently, there will be elections for the positions of:

- General Director, currently held by Mike Stringer 
- Greater Sydney Regional Director, currently held by Bob Wilson 
- Illawarra Regional Director, currently held by Doug Musker 
- Monaro, currently held by Howard Staples

The Board has determined that a member can only be nominated for one Director’s position in any election. 

Method of nomination
Nominations for election require a proposer, seconder and an acceptance by the nominee on Form MR195 Nomination for Regional and/or General Elections 2014, including career and MRNSW service details. This document, the statement of Directors’ Code of Conduct and Directors’ Charter are available on the OTTER system, under Documents/ Annual General Meetings/ Annual General Meeting 2014. 

Close of nominations
Nominations for the four Directors’ positions close at the Close of Business at 5 p.m. on Friday, 10th October 2014. Nominations must be received at Marine Rescue NSW, 202 Nicholson Parade, Cronulla, NSW, 2230, marked to the attention of the Returning Officer, by this date.
