Polo Committee Applications Open

Applications are being invited for the SCA Polo Committee!

In line with the process set out in the Discipline Committee Terms of Reference, this is the first time the new 'application' system will take place. Here are the following key dates: 

Invite applications
10/04/2017: Application deadline 
11/04/2017 - 25/04/2017: Applications reviewed by Appointments committee. NB. The role of Appointments committee is simply to check individuals meet the minimum criteria i.e. are SCA members, and also to liaise with the current (or most recent committee) to be sure the applicants are suitable i.e. have knowledge and experience of the discipline. The appointments committee do not shortlist  - everyone who meets this criteria goes forward. 
25/04/2017: Ballot (if req). NB. The ballot would only happen this year if there are more applicants than spaces (maximum spaces are 9) and this year all spaces are open. In future years it will typically be up to 3 spaces per year. 
16/05//2017: Deadline for postal votes 
17/05/2017: Postal votes compiled and forwarded to meeting chair
20/05/2017: ACM - new committee members announced

Different roles on the committee will stand for a period of between 1 and 3 years, to allow rotation of people; in future years, recommended terms will be 3 years.
