HUST Nomination Form 2015/2016

A Candidate Information Pack, outlining the duties and responsibilities of Board members will also be available for download shortly.

The Election Management Group is currently in the process of sending formal notice of the election to all trust members either electronically or via Royal Mail. We acknowledge that it is not ideal that nominations should open before members receive the election notice, but unfortunately a combination of circumstances has made this situation unavoidable.

Please be assured that your EMG are working hard to ensure a transparent and democratic election process, while remaining mindful of the need for HUST to return quickly to business.

As mentioned previously the EMG has been setting up an email group for election communications. We would strongly encourage all members to respond to the EMG email request to join this group as it will make communication quicker and easier.

Any member who does not join the email group will need to be contacted by Royal Mail which obviously will involve a significant expense for the trust.

The EMG can be contacted at hustelections@gmail.com

Complaints or concerns about the election process should be addressed to the Neil Le Milliere the independent EMG chairman: neil_le_milliere@btinternet.com
