2020 Council elections have closed.

Thank you to all of you who engaged in this years voting. This was the first time we tried a combination of both electronic and postal ballots and it resulted in over 30% turnout. This is a significant increase over previous years and we thank Civica Election Services for their assistance this year.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had to postpone the AGM until sanctions on movement are lifted.

This will not impact on the appointment of the new Presidential team, or elected Council members, who will take up their appointments at the usual time in our calendar. 

The results will be announced here, on this site on 23rd April and through our normal communications channels.

Thank you all once again in these difficult times.
