The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the South West Regional Committee will be held at the PCS South West regional office in Bristol on Thursday 28 June from 12-3pm with a buffet lunch.
Branch Delegates and Observers - deadline 14 June
Each branch in the South West Region is entitled to send one delegate to the AGM in addition to any current Regional Committee Member from the branch. Branches are required to notify me by Thursday 14 June 2018 who their delegate will be by using the below delegate pro-forma. Branches may send observers whose travel expenses will be met by their branch – a pro-forma for registering observers is below.
Motions - deadline 14 June
Although restricted by what can be covered regionally that does not prevent branches submitting motions with instructions to the Regional Committee, provided these do not seek to impinge on or undermine national or group policies/strategies. Motions for debate at the AGM should be submitted, using the below motions pro-forma, by Thursday 14 June 2018. All motions received will then be circulated to all branch secretaries a week prior to the AGM.
Elections- deadline 7 June
Nominations are invited for membership of the Regional Committee made up of Chair, three Vice Chairs and 12 Committee members. The rules and restrictions outlined in the Regional Committee Constitution should be carefully noted. A form on which to make the nominations is below and should be returned to the Regional Secretary by Thursday 7 June 2018. The Regional Secretary will contact nominees to advise them that they have been nominated and to ask if they accept the nomination.
We would especially welcome nominations from branches for Women, Young Reps, Black Reps, Disabled Reps and LGBTQ Reps.
Lists of nominees for all position will be circulated to all Branch Secretaries a week prior to the AGM. Voting will take place at the Regional AGM.
The Regional Secretary will contact nominees to the Regional Committee rather than an individual branch having to contact those they nominate to find out whether they accept nomination.
Guest speakers for the AGM will be announced in due course.
