The Memorandum and Articles of Association of the Company (Voluntary Action North East Lincolnshire) requires its members to elect an Executive Committee at its Annual General Meeting (AGM). The Executive Committee should have at least five members and not more than fifteen members.
We therefore need a maximum of fifteen nominations for members of the Executive Committee. Nominations must be from an organisation that is currently a Member of Voluntary Action North East Lincolnshire (VANEL).
The Honorary Officers, namely Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer and Minute Secretary will be elected from amongst their number at the first meeting of the Executive Committee following the Annual General Meeting.
Please note that all new Trustees will be interviewed and subjected to checks for entitlement to be a Trustee.
