Become a CERES member

Announcement by Returning Officer

I wish to advise that an administrative error was made in preparing the form made available to members with the request for nominations for the CERES Board positions falling vacant at the 2014 annual general meeting.

The CERES Rules & Purposes, that all members are required to comply with, state:

28.4 The original nominations must be received by the returning officer by no later than 5.00 pm 7 days before the annual general meeting.

Based on the annual general meeting date of Tuesday 25 November 2014, the date indicated on the form should have read Tuesday 18 November 2014. However, the nomination form indicated the time and date for the close of nominations as 5pm on Tuesday 19 November 2014. The CEO managed the revision of the form, and has expressed her sincere regret for the error.
I apologise for any inconvenience and advise that the election for the Board positions falling vacant will continue as required by the CERES Rules & Purposes between 9am and 8pm on Tuesday 25 November 2014.

Lidia Harding, Returning Officer
