*ELECTION OF DIRECTORS IMPORTANT*
The returning officer for this year's AGM is Donal Hunt. All queries can be
sent to donal.hunt at openstreetmap.ie
This year there are two directors stepping down and not seeking re-election
opening up opportunities for other members to join the board. As a result,
the intent will be to fill 2 seats if enough candidates are nominated.
To enable as many people as possible to run for election and vote, the
board has decided to close nominations for election to the board at the AGM
(during agenda item # 9). If an election is required (more people run than
seats on the board), we will hold an election using the OpaVote platform
and the proportional representation single transferable vote (PR:STV)
system. All members will be sent a link to submit their vote. Voting will
close at 13:00 UTC+1 on 01 July 2021. Provisional results will be shared
the same day once candidates have been informed. Validation that the
elected members meet the criteria set out in the regulations on company
directors will proceed after that. In the event an elected director is not
eligible to stand as a company director, the board may co-opt other
Two motions have been received from members to date. If you wish to submit
a motion, you may do so here <https://forms.gle/G1TXFKAPnekBBnSS6>.
Deadline is 09:00 tomorrow.
Submitters (or their nominee) will be given a few minutes to present the
motion during the relevant section of the AGM. Members may comment or ask
questions (please be concise and to the point) before being put to the
membership to determine if the motion should be passed.
If there are any questions, email board at openstreetmap.ie or myself.
