I am pleased to announce that we have had a huge response with people wishing to register their interest in helping with the Association.

What's Next?

We have now collated all of those who have volunteered for their name to put down for one of our roles that we have available, we are now wanting to hear from you as to who you would like to see help run the Association. More »

Some of the roles we only have one person who has expressed an interest in that role so you would simply either select Yes, No or Abstain from the vote, for other roles we have a number of people who wish to put themselves forward for it.

In this instance we need you to vote on who you would like to see in that role by putting a tick next to the name of the person you are voting for. See blow for details of how to vote. » Less
