Call for Nominations for Directors of Scouting Ireland

14th January 2020
Re: All Scout Groups: Call for Nominations for Directors of Scouting Ireland

Dear <<First Name>>,
As you will know, the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Scouting Ireland will take place on 25th April 2020.
This letter to remind all Scout Groups that the closing date for Nominations for Directors of Scouting Ireland is now approaching. The closing date for the return of completed Nomination Forms, by email is Saturday 18th January 2020.
Nominations forms being returned by post, need to be received by 17.00 on Friday 17th January 2020.
You can return your forms by post to National Office or if you prefer you can download the Word version of both the Application form and the Self-assessment form, fill them in off line, then have them signed and you can then scan and return by email to if you prefer.
It is important to note that it is only Scout Groups which are registered as members (i.e. are entered onto the Register of Members) that can nominate individual members, for the role of director of Scouting Ireland.
I would urge you to have a look at your group membership and if there is someone who you believe would make a good director, then please approach them. If the person is willing to allow their name go forward then please submit the completed application and competencies self-assessment forms.
What is important is that every Scout Group participates in the nomination process. Nominees don’t have had to have worked at a national level before. In fact, it would be great to encourage new members to apply; that have not previously served at national level.
Remember one of the main outcomes of the Governance changes which have occurred, is that, the Scout Group is primary to everything we do in Scouting Ireland. Therefore, it is important that you as Scout Groups make sure that you put forward the candidates that you want to see guiding and leading your Scouting Ireland for the future.
Please note that groups are invited to submit motions for consideration by the Motions Committee for presentation to the AGM. A separate communication will be issued on this shortly, with a deadline for submission of 1st February.
