MAYO PPN REPRESENTIVE to NORTHWEST FISHERIES LOCAL ACTION GROUP (NWFLAG)
There are 3 steps involved in the process of electing a representative:
Step 1: Forming a Linkage Group
A Linkage group is made up of people from groups with niche interests or expertise in the issues being discussed on a board or committee. These groups should be established when representatives are being selected. (Example – Mayo Childcare)
The Linkage group elect the Mayo PPN Representative to boards or committees, they receive feedback from the representative and they direct the representative’s activity on the board.
• You must be registered with Mayo PPN in order to be involved in the Linkage Group. You can register on-line at the following link http://www.mayoppn.net/Join.html .
• Registration is ongoing but in order for your group to participate in the nominating process, your group must be registered by 5pm February 27th 2017.
• If you are interested in being involved in the NWFLAG Linkage group please send your groups details to Ann Marie McGing by 5pm on March 1st 2017.
Step 2: Nominating a Representative
All members of the Linkage group can nominate a suitable person to be considered for election to the board or committee. Please see attached GUIDE TO CHOOSING SUITABLE PPN REPRESENTATIVES FOR BOARDS & COMMITTEES which has some guidance for groups when selecting their nomination.
Groups wishing to nominate an individual should read the criteria for the representative carefully and ensure that their nominee is aware of their duties. Please see NORTH WEST FISHERIES LOCAL ACTION GROUP (NWFLAG) SEEKING NOMINATIONS FOR COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVE – CRITERIA and an outline of ROLE OF A PPN REPRESENTATIVE documents attached.
If your group wishes to nominate a member to represent the Linkage Group on the NWFLAG board please complete the attached Nomination Form and ensure that it is signed by both the nominated person and either your chairperson or secretary.
**Nominations must be returned to Ann Marie McGing by 5pm March 6th 2017.**
Step 3: Electing a Representative
Once all nominations have been received details of election and a polling card will be circulated to every member of the Linkage Group.
If only one nomination is received he/she will be automatically elected to the board/committee.
