Motion to amend the election policy of Burnley Supporters Society Limited

11th Burnley Supporters Society Limited Annual General meeting 28th June 2016

Paragraph 6.3 of the above policy states that when being nominated for Board membership
‘Candidate statements should be at least 400 words long and no longer than 1000 words. If a candidate’s statement has more 1000 words, it will be truncated and text will be inserted below stating “The candidate’s statement has exceeded the permitted amount and has therefore been truncated”. The number of words counted shall be decided using Microsoft Word’.

This requirement for a 400 word minimum statement is regarded as too onerous and it is proposed that it is amended to read:
‘Candidate statements should be no longer than 400 words. If a candidate’s statement has more than 400 words, it will be truncated and text will be inserted below stating “The candidate’s statement has exceeded the permitted amount and has therefore been truncated”. The number of words counted shall be decided using Microsoft Word’.

Motion proposed by John Trippier

Motion seconded by Michael Benyon
