The nomination process
Before you start please take note of Lens’s membership and branch number. You will need them both to complete the nomination pack.
Make sure you have a nomination pack
Branches: Nominating packs have already been sent out to Branch Secretaries. If your Branch Secretary has not received theirs, they can be requested at [email protected] or call your regional office.
Workplaces: Workplace nomination packs are not automatically sent out. They can be obtained by calling your regional office.
You can find the number for your regional office at
Call a meeting and tell your members about it
All branches and workplaces wishing to nominate must hold a meeting between January 16 and February 17. Notice must be given for the meeting clearly stating that nominations for the General Secretary election will be on the agenda.
For your nomination to be valid, the meeting must have enough people attending to be “quorate”. You must have at least five eligible members for a branch meeting and three for a workplace meeting.
Minutes and an attendee list must be taken. You will also need to make sure a rep attends a workplace meeting and the Branch Secretary attends the branch.
