Party: Long live the Finance Officer.

On Tuesday Shaun Daley, our Party Treasurer may of this year resigned his position and (as he put it) is "about to run away " to Romania. Given the deadlines that the party must meet to satisfy Her Majesties Revenue and Customs, Sam Clarke, Governor and now former member of the party's Treasury Oversight Committee will be stepping in to the breach and taking responsibility for treasury as the party's Financial Officer until internal elections in October.

Voting on the election of a new Party Treasurer has now closed. Gavin Meredith received 52 votes (with 5 for reopening of nominations), and is duly elected (full results).
Hopefully he will post a blog later this week to introduce himself and lay out his immediate plans as our new Treasurer!

Vote is now open

The member vote for the new party Treasurer is now open.

One candidate, Gavin Meredith, put himself forward for the vacant position of Treasurer, and has been seconded.

As there are no other candidates, the options will be to confirm Gavin, or to vote to re-open nominations. The vote will run for two weeks, until 19:00 Monday May 16th.

Nominations for Internal Elections

The good news is that the first ‘trial’ of our members voting system already looks to have been a success. That trial is the current ratification vote to approve or reject the appointment of four second-tier positions of administrative responsibility, like Deputy Treasurer or Head of the Web Team. The voting system appears to be working correctly, and just as important, our members have been using it. A quarter of members have voted already, within just two days of the vote commencing. Many thanks to Tom and the team that implemented the system, and many thanks to those of you who have voted already. For those who have not voted already, the vote will remain open until the end of Sunday 29th November.


Your Approval for New Positions of Trust

Editor's picture

Members of the Pirate Party UK, we would like your approval to appoint people to new positions of trust.  Why do we seek your approval?  Because we are a party that aspires to be both democratic and transparent.  Why then are these positions not up for election?  Because they are not really the right sort of position - these are jobs where we need skilled and trusted individuals who have already been vetted to ensure they are up to the challenge and are there to support the administration of the party.
