Board Member Applications – Now Closed

Applications for the 2018:19 CSPA board opened at 9:00 am on October 8 and closed at 5:00 pm on November 16, 2018.

Will board nominations re-open given the AGM has been deferred?

CSPA board nominations will stand as per the Friday 16 November 2018 5:00 pm deadline. They stand as we are not changing anything material, only extending the time period – no changes to the election process.

To further explain, if the AGM had gone ahead (on Wednesday 21 November 2018) the nominations would have stood. CSPA is not changing that process as that would then disadvantage those people who did the right thing and nominated. 

Will our proxies still stand?

Yes, all proxies gathered will still stand. CSPA can accept proxies by post or electronically until 24 hours before the deferred date. Refer to point 34 (6) (7) in the CSPA Rules of Association. Please note that if you intend to appoint a proxy and give to the Chairperson at the commencement of the deferred meeting, please use a CSPA proxy form (digital or hard copy) easily available for download above.
