Collingwood president Mark Korda has updated members ahead of the AGM in December:
As previously announced, the nomination period for the election of four (4) directors to the board of the Collingwood Football Club will open on October 15, 2021, and close on November 4, 2021.
The outcome of the election will be ratified at the 2021 AGM on December 16.
The election will concern a majority of the board – four of seven directors – and be decided by the vote of eligible members.
Voting members are those who hold a Legends, Club 5 or Social Club membership and are entitled to access all 11 of the club’s home games during the home and away season.
If there are more nominations of eligible candidates than vacancies and a contested election is required, voting shall commence on November 19 and close on December 10, six days before the AGM.
The board has been advised by Jeff Browne (Club 5 member) that he, Renee Roberts (Club 5 member) and Barry Carp (Legends member) intend to nominate for a position on the board.
The board welcomes these nominations and the important contribution they can make to the club’s future success and the journey of renewal which the club has undertaken in recent years.
Following the AGM, the newly elected board will meet to appoint the next president of our great club. As I have only one season left on the board, I will not be a candidate for the presidency.
Thank you for your ongoing support of Collingwood.
