Upon receipt of the nomination, the incumbent will be informed by the secretary 4 weeks ahead of the AGM of any other nominations. The incumbent then has a choice. If she/he wishes to continue to stand, a biography of 100 words will need to be completed for circulation to the membership 3 weeks ahead of the AGM. There will then be an election at the AGM.
