Annual General Meeting 2019 and Board Nominations

The 2019 annual general meeting (AGM) of JudoScotland will take place on Saturday 5 October 2019, alongside the highly successful and award-winning ‘Gathering’ event.

             In advance of this year’s AGM, we hereby give formal notice that the following nominations are sought for the JudoScotland (JS) Board:

  • Two (2) Non-Executive Directors.

Please find below a job description and person specification for the above position(s). This should provide prospective candidates with relevant background information on the roles currently available.

Nomination Process

In terms of the nomination procedure:

  • Nominations for any position on the Board must be received in the Company office no less than thirty days prior to the Annual General Meeting (AGM). For the avoidance of doubt, all nominations should be received by 1630 hours on Thursday 5 September 2019;

  • Each nomination should be supported and endorsed by two JudoScotland Member Clubs and;

  • Each nomination should take the form of a ‘pen portrait’ of the candidate.

Please note that the above position(s) are not suitable for anyone disqualified from holding a Directorship in a Limited Company.

Pen Portrait Submission

In previous years, we have been asked for broad guidance around the submission of the ‘pen portrait’ for aspirant members of the Board. To look towards ensuring uniformity and equality, we would appreciate that any submitted ‘pen portraits’ do not exceed two (2) pages of A4 paper in length.

Aspirant Board members can submit a document of their own design, or alternatively we have supplied a pro-forma template (see below) that individuals may wish to complete and submit. All nomination forms received that meet the requirements of the Articles will be issued to member Clubs as part of the formal notice of the AGM, to be sent at least fourteen days prior to the date of the AGM.

Please find below:
