election results

Hello BAA,

Where on the website will I find the election results for Trustess and Council members? These results if they are on the website are not easily visible.

Hi Denis,

If you go to the 'About Us' tab on the BAA home page and then select 'Who's who' you will find a list of trustees, the council and section directors.  As I was at the AGM last October, the number of votes for each candidate for the current council was given - I assume this part of the meeting has been included in the video of the meeting (but I've not checked myself'.

Best wishes,

Peter

Hi Denis,

The results will appear in the report of the AGM in the February Journal. I am seeing if I can get hold of a copy to add to this forum thread.

Thanks for pointing out the 'Who's who' Peter.

Best wishes,

Andy

Thanks Peter and Andy.

Thanks Peter and Andy.

I should and could have looked at Who's Who myself. Just laziness on my part, sorry. It would be useful if  the email addresses of the Trustees were appended to their thumbnail imags on Who's Who.

Thanks Denis

RE: counts

Seems a very low percentage of members actually voting.  Around the 10% mark I would guess?  Lets hope any future e-voting implemeted by the BAA will see this number increase.  I suspect it will.
