GAGB Members vote for the new Chairman!
« on: November 03, 2012, 05:55:46 pm »
As some of you know Dave from The Wombles isn't standing for reelection as the GAGB chairman.

The two candidates to take over are Maple Leaf and Sandvika.

Voting has started, and although 300+ votes have been cast, not even 25% of members have voted... So if you're a member get voting!

Both candidates have a good vision for how they'll change the GAGB, making it more important and the heart if the UK caching community rather than "just being there"  ;)

Get voting and have your say on the future of the GAGB, the future of caching in the UK potentially. Both have different views, so support the one you agree with!  ;D

Please forgive my ignorance, but do you know if all members of the GAGB forums can vote, or do you have to be like a special member of some sort? I haven't frequented the site until recently. I have read through the threads you posted, but I haven't received an email with voting form. I have checked my spam mail folder, but nothing. My email is correct with them.

If you are listed as GAGB member on the forums then you're able to vote. If you are, try going to the instruction link and message one of them.  :)

Thank you both. I have checked thoroughly my registered email is correct and looked through my mail junk spam folders. I have sent a mail to ladybugs, I wait to hear back.

If you are "Gackt" for the GAGB, you are not on the users list...
Forum members are not Members...
(Forum members were recently removed from the site)
There is a time limit, you had to be a member by a certain date, for members that can vote.
I have a Geocaching problem...
Work gets in the way!

Thank you Bear and Ragged. I am actually SangueG for the GAGB, as I am on this site site and a few others. But have only been a forum member for a very short time, so that may be the reason. I wait to find out still.
