Call for Nominations for Elected Officers 2018

The nominations for Elected Officers for 2018/19 will open on Tuesday 5 June 2018. Members interested in standing for any of the elected roles may collect a Nomination Form from the General Manager, which must be returned by the closing time, which is no later than midday on Monday 25 June 2018.

The Commodore (Michael Lockley) and the Vice Commodore (Ron Palmer) have each completed one year of a three year term.

Directors James Bullough and Warwick Welch have completed two years of their three year term.

Directors Norman Weaver and William Ebsary will be completing a full three year term concluding in July 2018. As each have completed only one three year term, Norman Weaver and William Ebsary are entitled to stand again however both Directors have notified the Chairman of their decision not to re-stand. The Club thanks Norm and Bill for their service and dedication.

Thus there are two Director vacancies available for nomination. The term will be July 2018 – July 2021.

Rear Commodore Yacht Racing, Allen Stormon and Rear Commodore Membership, Elizabeth de Soyres have both completed one year of a two year term.

Rear Commodore Activities, Salvatore Ridulfo, has served three of a maximum four consecutive years as Rear Commodore as at July 2018 and will not re-stand for this role.

Rear Commodore Cruising, Leon Wilson and Rear Commodore Centreboard, David Taylor have each completed one two year term concluding in July 2018. Leon Wilson and David Taylor are entitled to stand again for a further two year term should they wish to nominate.

Only FULL FINANCIAL MEMBERS may nominate. The Club Constitution (Rule 23.1B) states that at least two Elected Directors as well as the Commodore and Vice Commodore are required to own at least 25% of a Sailing Yacht on the Club's Register of Vessels on the date or dates that they nominate for and are elected or appointed to office. Therefore, as Warwick Welch owns a Sailing Yacht and James Bullough does not, at least one of the two elected Directors must own 25% of a Sailing Yacht. In the event a ballot is required, the nominee with the highest number of votes will be elected as the first Director. In the event that the first elected Director is not a Sailing Yacht owner, the nominee with the next most votes who owns a Sailing Yacht will be elected.

The Club Constitution (Rule 31.2b) states that all Rear Commodore positions require the nominee to own at least 25% of a Sailing Yacht on the Club’s Register of Vessels at the date of nomination, with the exception of the Rear Commodore Centreboard who is required to provide evidence of involvement in Centreboard activities for the 3 preceding years.

Further information regarding qualifications and duties are outlined in the RPAYC Constitution which can be accessed in the Members section of the RPAYC website (refer Rules 23 and 31). Copies are also available at Reception.

Where more than one nomination is received, a ballot will be taken and voting times will be published. Voting will take place at the Club at nominated times, in the lead up to and at the Annual General Meeting. The AGM will be held on Tuesday, 24 July 2018 at 8.00pm and results of any ballot will be announced at the meeting.

The Halyards Bar will be open prior to and following the AGM.
Alfred’s Table will offer a two course meal at two sittings - 6pm and 6.30pm.
It is essential to pre-book your meal choice through Reception when you book.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Suzanne Davies
Company Secretary & General Manager
