Online and on-site voting for Diggers’ board

The Ettalong Beach War Memorial Club, trading as Ettalong Diggers, will hold its annual meeting both on-site and online at 4pm on October 24 this year.
“Members may attend the annual general meeting either in person or via a Zoom meeting, so that the Covid-19 Pandemic does not prevent members from attending,” said chief executive Mr Bill Jackson.
Elections will be held for two positions on the board, with nomination forms available from Mr Jackson from Friday, September 25.
Members wishing to vote online were required to register with the club before 5pm on October 9, he said.
If it is confirmed that there are more than two nominees, requiring an election, the returning officer will send out the required voting information.
Those registered to vote on-line will not be able to vote on site, and vice-versa, Mr Jackson said.
“The Board is, like most of our members, dismayed that this pandemic has resulted in such community uncertainty
“However, we have the opportunity to combine on-line technology and face to face meetings, to help protect the health and well-being of our members while allowing as many as possible to participate in the meeting.”
