Note on Management Committee Elections:
There are currently nine LLRA Management Committee members, all elected at the 2017 AGM with the exception of Jackie Ward our Treasurer who was co-opted to this role. See LLRA Management Committee. The LLRA constitution requires one third of the committee to stand down, decided by lot, and may stand for re-election. Jackie Ward – LLRA Treasurer, Tony Wass and Emma Olivier-Townrow were selected to stand down and all will stand for re-election. There is no constitutional requirement to have a committee of a specific number.
We are always looking for residents who want to make a real difference in their community and are prepared to play an active role in the LLRA by spending time planning or leading community projects, as well as attending committee meetings. Anyone wishing to stand for election to the Residents Association Management Committee simply needs to notify Jon Davies, LLRA Secretary, no later than the start of the AGM (by 7pm 22 May) . If you would like to learn more about being on the Management Committee then please feel free to contact Jon Davies, LLRA Secretary (email firstname.lastname@example.org tel 01522 853630) who will be happy to help. There is always the opportunity for any resident to be involved in some of the teams working on community projects, without standing for election if they so wish.
Candidates wishing to stand for the Management Committee are welcome to send candidate profile details and a photograph to Jon Davies, so their details can be added to the Long Leys Community website to help improve their visibility within the community. See LLRA Management Committee page for an example profile. There is no requirement for any candidate to do this.
