A list of the candidates’ names in alphabetical order, together with the proposers and seconders names will then be posted at the office of the Chamber at GC Business Hub Kay House Level 2 – 35 Scarborough Street, Southport.


2. Second Step - Election

If there are more candidates than there are vacant positions, members will vote by ballot. If not, members will vote by a show of hands. Only financial members can participate in the vote. Candidates with the most votes over 50% of the vote win the respective position.

At the commencement of the AGM should there be an insufficient number of candidates nominated to fill all positions; nominations may be taken from the floor of the meeting. In those circumstances those persons nominated must also receive 50% of the vote in order to be elected to the Board of Management.

We wait to hear from you with any nominations by the deadline date of 5pm Monday 1 November 2021.
