No, Im raising a serious question about funding. Will the Board commit to paying for the election annually? If not who will? At a cost Ive estimated at £10,000, so may be out sliightly either way, it is one of the first challenges of the new Supporters Board when drawing up a constitution.
So no Woz, not having a laugh, posing a very serious question.
You are miles out on cost. In fact if you used your multiplier on cost vs how many years a term of office would be then you would be looking at one year.
As everyone knows I don't post anymore but I will draft something over the weekend that answers all the concerns on this thread and more just to stop the void being filled.
Have to say I don't understand the first paragraph of Chris's post.
I think he's either saying that the election is costing £2,500 or £40,000 so I would guess (hope!!) that it's the lower of the two.
So I'm assuming that we're looking at a cost of £2,500 which seems rather low.
Postage alone for sending out the 4,000+ voting packs and (presumably) pre-paid return postage would account for most / all of £2,500.
Then there's all the printing, and I don't suppose these ERS people are doing it for free.
This money, however much, could surely have been better spent.
I would put the nine names in a hat and draw out six. Cost £0.00.
