Elections G-I-N Board 2012

The elections will start in May 2012 and we would like that all members start thinking about potential candidates for the Board of Trustees.


This is the time of the year when G-I-N prepares for elections. We are keen to further increase participation and are therefore beginning to start reminding of the process and giving the outline of the timetable earlier than previously. The Board, as always, ensures that Scottish Charity rules are followed. Please find more information on the composition of the G-I-N Board of Trustees on the website The actual election process will start in May.

Please do not hesitate to ask about practical matters or contact any of the members of the Board!

Nomination & Voting process

  1. The first step in the election process is the nomination of potential Trustees
  • Nomination of any potential Organisational Trustee. Nominees will then be asked to provide a short statement and picture that will be use for the election round.
  • All individual members are invited to express their interest for the position of Individual Trustee. Expression of interest must be in writing using the relevant candidate form and include a statement of up to 250 words.
  • If there are more nominees than vacancies on the Board, a voting process will take place and ballot forms will be issued.
  • Elected Trustees will be informed in writing of the result of the vote by the current Chair.
  • The results of the vote are announced at the Annual General Meeting.
  • Following the elections

    The new G-I-N Board discusses co-options of additional Trustees. Co-option is usually decided to ensure good geographical representation and/or to provide the Board with additional, relevant, expertise. Note: unsuccessful Trustee candidates cannot be co-opted to the Board.


    We want to encourage you to start thinking about potential candidates for the Board of Trustees. You can also start discussing this with colleagues to ensure that you are ready when the process starts.
