Board Elections

The Board election ballot notice is a key opportunity for all the eligible hostel members to participate in the annual election process of SYHA, a registered Scottish Charity and a Company Limited by Guarantee.

In accordance with SYHA Articles of Association there are three elected vacancies to be filled on the Board, with five Board Nominees having been recommended to stand for election.

Biographical notes on each nominated candidate are included in the postal ballot form which can be found in members' copies of Scottish Hosteller Magazine 2017 and should be completed and returned to the freepost address noted. Alternatively, members can cast their votes using the electronic voting form.

All votes cast will be treated in the strictest confidence and the election count will be conducted by the Company Secretary. Closing date to receive polling cards is Friday 28th April 2017 and the election results will be published by the Company Secretary to all nominated candidates by 5th May 2017 and published on our website.
