Today Gateway members engaged in a secret ballot to elect member representatives for the new management committee.
I’d like to say a big thank you to all the members for engaging in the process, attending information sessions and for putting themselves forward – we had 6 members nominated to vote on this afternoon.
The results ended in a tied position at number two. Following discussions with current Advisory Committee member reps and members in Gateway after the result, it was agreed that given the circumstances and interest that Gateway would proceed with 3 member reps on the Management Committee. Oliver D will report this to the management sub group at their meeting this Friday.
Congratulations to Maura F, Mick B and Oliver D on becoming Gateway’s new Management Committee representatives for the future. Each person will bring their own strengths and perspectives to the management of Gateway. While we are waiting for the new Committee to establish itself fully, we will provide our new reps with training and opportunities to practice and learn at their own pace.
Thanks again to everyone involved for making it a fair, open and inclusive process!
