MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE ELECTIONS
Any Long Leys resident who wishes to make a positive contribution to the community is warmly encouraged to stand at the AGM for election to the management committee. The committee meets around seven times per year and committee members also devote time to progressing specific initiatives on behalf of the community. It also represents Long Leys residents with several bodies including the city and county councils.
The committee consists of between 5 and 9 committee members (currently 8), depending on volunteer workload and the number of projects being progressed.
The LLRA constitution requires approximately one third of Committee members to stand down at each AGM. This year two committee members stand down by rotation (Jackie Ward, Emma Olivier-Townrow) and can stand for re-election.
