Any official constituency is entitled to nominate one person for each vacant post. The sole exception is for the roles of regional representatives - constituencies may only nominate candidates for their own region.

Constituencies wishing to nominate individuals for any post shall obtain the consent of the nominee before so doing, and will return a Nomination Form to the Designated Officer by 12:00 Midday on Friday 29 July 2022.

Nominations can be submitted by e-mail.  This will require the Constituency Chair or Secretary sending an e-mail for the attention of the Designated Officer confirming the nomination of their constituency.

Any nomination received by the Designated Officer which is not in the name of an official Constituency, or which does not include the agreement of the nominee to the nomination, or which is the second or subsequent nomination for a single post from the same source for different persons, or which arrives after the closing date, shall be invalid.

Designated Officer:  Carl Harris - Chief Executive
