AGM: calls for committee nominations and branch motions
The AGM is open to Edinburgh Green Party members only. Doors open 7pm; the meeting starts at 7.30pm.
If you can’t attend in person, join the meeting via Skype: email firstname.lastname@example.org for the Skype link.
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. The committee meets monthly – 1st Thursday of the month and uses Slack and email to communicate and plan throughout the month.
You can find descriptions for committee roles here https://members.greens.
In addition to the committee roles, we will be recruiting up to three people to join our delegation team to national council meetings.
To apply, send a 200 word statement to email@example.com
The deadline for applying to be a committee member is noon on 26th 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:
a) change the standing orders or constitution of the branch (you can see these here: www.edinburghgreens.org.
b) 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
c) propose a local team (or teams) to become a sub-branch
d) 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).
Your motion may have a preamble explaining the purpose of the motion and any essential context which should be no more than 200 words. The motion itself must clearly and unambiguously state the changes to a named branch document you wish to make, or, the decision or action that you wish the branch to take.”
If you’re thinking of submitting a motion, you may like to contact the sitting branch committee as soon as possible for guidance on formulating it.
Motions should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
