Special Circumstances – General
As can be seen in our constitution, some committee positions have extra considerations to be eligible. However, if you feel you can genuinely contribute to the role please do not hesitate to apply or at the very least, we hope you would be willing to ask more about the role. The Executive Committee has the power to disregard these considerations if we feel it to be appropriate.
Special Circumstances – Senior Analysts
All positions of Senior Analyst will not be held for election at the coming AGM as they are selected by the new Executive Committee through a separate application process.
