Explanatory notes

Explanatory Note 1 (Resolution 3)
The Articles require that Nominated Directors are endorsed by the Membership in a secret ballot on or before the AGM [Article 33c]. Dr Stewart Bryant, G3YSX was recommended to the Board as a Nominated Director by the Nominations Committee on 17 May 2023. This was to fill the Nominated Director vacancy left by the resignation of Richard Horton, G4AOJ. The date of Mr Horton’s resignation meant that it was not possible to run a NomCom process prior to the 2023 AGM. The Board accepted the recommendation at its meeting of 27 May 2023. Dr Stewart Bryant, G3YSX is therefore offered for endorsement in accordance with the Articles. Because Dr Bryant had been co-opted as a Director for more than six months prior to the 2024 AGM to ensure compliance with Article 32 (term limits) if endorsed in the ballot he will serve until the 2026 AGM.

Explanatory Note 2 (Resolution 3)
Ben Lloyd, GW4BML and Nathan Joseph Nuttall, 2M0OCC were recommended to the Board as Nominated Directors by the Nominations Committee at its meeting on 18 January 2024. The Board accepted the recommendations at its meeting on 27 January 2024. Ben Lloyd, GW4BML and Nathan Joseph Nuttall, 2M0OCC are therefore offered for endorsement in accordance with the Articles. Because Mr Lloyd had been co-opted as a Director for more than six months prior to the 2024 AGM to ensure compliance with Article 32 (term limits) if endorsed in the ballot he will serve until the 2026 AGM. Nathan Nuttall, 2M0OCC will serve, if endorsed, a full three-year term until the 2027 AGM as his co-option was for less than six months.

Explanatory Note 3 (Resolution 3)
In addition to the vacancies for Nominated Directors one vacancy for Elected Director was due to be filled at the 2024 AGM. A request for candidates was set out in the January 2024 RadCom and online. At the closing date for nominations on 31 January 2024 only one candidate, Mark Jones, G0MGX, was duly nominated. There is no provision in the Articles for a member vote in these circumstances. Mark Jones, G0MGX has therefore been declared duly elected and will serve as an elected Director until the 2027 AGM. Five Regional Representatives were also elected unopposed and details of them can be found at www.rsgb.org/agm No valid nominations were received for three Regions and these posts can be filled via co-option.
