2015-05-21 AGM Agenda/Election
The election will take place electronically using OpaVote, and you will receive an individual voting email to your registered email address after the AGM.
The nomination window is still open.
If you would like to stand please email firstname.lastname@example.org with:
- Your full legal name.

- A paragraph about why you want to be a trustee.
The nomination window will close at 23:59 on 20th May.
We will start the election on the 28th May this year and it will run for 7 days. This allows the current trustees to sign off on last years accounts before some of them stand down. All members, no matter how remote, will be able to vote. You will receive an email to your registered email address after the AGM.
We are also looking for a returning officer to set up and handle the OPA vote system for the election. If you are interested in volunteering, please email email@example.com by 23:59 on 20th May.
There are four open trustee slots, and the following members have put themselves forward to be trustees.
|I think that the Hackspace is at a really interesting time in its growth. More and more members are treating the space as a service rather than a club, and this presents us with a number of challenges to overcome; from simply keeping the place clean to ensuring that the right tools are in the space and are easy and safe to use. I think the work that has happened over the last 6-9 months has started us on a track to becoming a much better set up organisation, and I look forward to taking that to the next level.|
|A paragraph about why you want to be a trustee: I just do, alright? I mean, like, whatever, y'know? Jeez, it's like trying to become a trustee in Nazi Germany or something.|
|I've been a member at Nottinghack for around two years, during which time I've seen our space go through a lot of great changes from fancy new tools to lots of new people. Considering the sheer amount I've gotten from the Hackspace in skills, new interests and great friends, I'd love to give some time back. Becoming a Trustee means I can help support Nottinghack to become even better known in our community of Makers and doers, and improve our space for members new and old.
Thanks for reading, I'll see you all at the AGM if not before!
|Hello! My name is Sophie and I've been a member of the Hackspace for about 16 months now. I'm running for Trustee because I feel that I've worked towards a large number of improvements in the 'space over the last 12 months and think even more progress can be made with me as a Trustee.
Over the past 12 months I have:
I hope the above show that I am keen to help the Hackspace move forward and progress, and believe that my eye for detail, love of processes and persistent attitude towards organisation show I would make a great Trustee and an asset to the team.
|Hi! I'm Rob and I've been a member of Nottinghack for nearly two and a half years. Over this time I've seen the membership rocket and the space adapt to changing needs. By becoming a Trustee I feel that I can help progress the development of the space.
Below are a few things I've been involved with so far as a member of the space:
I believe that I will make a valuable contribution as a member of the trustee team.
