Voting for Non-Executive Directors
Bath and West Community Energy’s Election Policy sets out the process for nominating and voting for Non-Executive Directors. They hold an introductory meeting for members interested in becoming Non-Executive Directors in advance of the deadline for returning nomination forms. Nominations must be supported by one proposing member and at least one supporting member, and can be made at the AGM at which the election is held. Candidates need to meet specified eligibility criteria and submit a statement with their nomination of up to 750 words outlining why they would make a good Director. The statements are copied and included with ballot papers and circulated to members before the AGM at which the election takes place. Vote counting is conducted under a simple majority system.
