The AGM on Thursday 28 June is where the branch elects members to join the branch committee, to guide the party over the next year. It is also the opportunity for members to vote on motions up for consideration.
Call for nominations
We would encourage all members to think about standing for a committee position – it is a great way to get more involved in what the branch does, and you will be playing a vital role in making sure campaigns, meetings and local teams run smoothly.
You can find descriptions for committee roles here.
In addition to the committee roles, we will be recruiting up to six people to join our delegation team to national council meetings.
To apply, send a 200 word statement to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for applying to be a committee member is noon on 21 June. Candidate statements will be collated and circulated to members before the AGM. If there is a position with no nominees, we will accept nominations from the floor at the AGM.
Motions can be passed at the AGM which:
- Change the standing orders or constitution of the branch (you can see these here: www.edinburghgreens.org.uk/
- Instruct the branch to act in a certain way, for example to endorse a campaign, review processes, or hold a meeting on a certain subject
- Propose a local team (or teams) to become a sub-branch
- Instruct Edinburgh branch to take a motion to the Scottish Green Party AGM in October (motions which are brought from branches are automatically ranked higher than motions brought by individuals).
Motions should be submitted via email to email@example.com.
Motions must be submitted by noon on 21 June. Motions will be circulated to branch members prior to the AGM.
