BCC Committee positions for 2015/16

bcclogo
The Constitution of the Belconnen Community Council requires that all positions for the Committee (Executive and ordinary) are declared vacant at the Annual General Meeting. The positions are then filled by eligible members that have been nominated for them.

To be eligible to be elected or appointed to a Committee position at the AGM, the nominated member must have attended at least three public meetings in the 12 months prior to the AGM. A nominee must be nominated or seconded (if they self-nominate) by a BCC member.

If there is a greater number of nominees than positions available then elections will be held at the AGM. Only registered BCC members present at the AGM are eligible to cast a vote.

The period to nominate for Committee positions opened on 28 October and closed on 10 November 2015. Nominations were received for the following positions:
Executive
Tara Cheyne            Chair
Damien Haas           Deputy
Chander Khera        Secretary
Timothy Bogie        Treasurer
Ordinary Committee Members
Michael Bakos
Graeme Evans
Christine Gingell
Elizabeth Hirst
Glen Hyde
Brian Rhynehart
Charles Thomas
As only one eligible member was nominated for each position, there is no requirement for an election to be held at the AGM. The eligible members that have been nominated for the positions will be declared to hold those positions at the 2015 AGM by the Returning Officer.

  • Download: BCC Committee member self-nomination form (any BCC member who has attended three or more meetings in the 12 months preceding the AGM can nominate but must be seconded by another BCC member; forms are due COB 10 November 2015)

The BCC Annual General Meeting will be held at the Community Room, upstairs at the Belconnen Library, on Tuesday 17 November 2015 commencing at 7:30 pm. All committee positions will be declared vacant at the AGM.

BCC adopted a new Constitution earlier this year. The most important change was the introduction of a register of members. Membership is free and application forms are available on the BCC website and at public meetings. The membership form lists the eligibility criteria which must be met. (Please note membership application forms will not be processed during the period COB 10 November 2015 until after the AGM on 17 November 2015.)

To be eligible to be elected or appointed to a Committee position at the AGM, the nominated member must have attended at least three public meetings in the 12 months prior to the AGM. A nominee must be nominated or seconded (if they self-nominate) by a BCC member.

If there is a greater number of nominees than positions available then elections will be held at the AGM.   Only registered BCC members present at the AGM will be eligible to cast a vote. Any Committee vacancies following the AGM will be dealt with as casual vacancies.

If you are interested in nominating yourself or another member for a position on the 2015-16 BCC Committee it is necessary that a completed nomination form is received by the BCC Secretary at secretary@belcouncil.org.au or PO Box 1131, Belconnen ACT 2617 before COB on 10 November 2015. All nominees are invited to submit a 150-word (maximum) statement in support of their nomination. The statements will be published on the BCC website.

We are seeking to fill the following positions for 2015-16:

  • Chair
  • Deputy Chair
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
  • 8 ordinary Committee members

Committee meetings are currently held regularly on the last Wednesday of the month (January-November) 7:30-9:30 pm with some additional meetings held on an ‘as needs’ basis.

If you have any questions – including about whether you are a registered BCC member or eligible to stand for any of the committee positions – please email hello@belcouncil.org.au or contact either Tara Cheyne (Chair) on 0433 176 662 or Christine Gingell (Secretary) on 6254 4047.
