Since no-one else has nominated anyone yet, its time for the traditional “nominate the incumbents and force them to make a ddge roll”:

  • I nominate Courtney Parnell for regional director.
  • I nominate Donna Giltrap for regional secretary
  • I nominate myself, Malcolm Harbrow, for regional treasurer
  • I nominate Toby Stewart for gear officer
  • I nominate Tim Crow for general officer
  • I nominate Bradley Blucher for general officer

I second all of the above

I’ll hold off accepting my nomination for a bit in case anyone else is interested.

Note that we don’t have a nomination for marketing officer yet.

Also, while you can only hold one position, you can stand for more than one (you’ll just need to pick if you get elected to multiple positions)
