The elections for TECT – one of the country’s leading charities with almost $1 billion in assets – have come around again. And there is strong interest from candidates for the three positions available on the Trust, according to Independent Returning Officer, Warwick Lampp.
TECT is governed by six trustees, three of whom retire by rotation this year.
Current trustee Amanda Sutcliffe has chosen not to stand, but Bill Holland and Natalie Bridges are re-standing.
Nominations were sought from eligible TECT beneficiaries for the election of three trustees to hold office for the next four years.
Nominations closed on 29 May, with 13 candidates nominated for the positions available. This compares to 19 in 2018, 11 candidates in 2016, and 19 candidates in 2014.
The election will be conducted by postal and internet voting using the First Past the Post election method.
Voting papers, together with information about the candidates will be sent to eligible TECT beneficiaries from Monday, 22 June 2020.
Each eligible beneficiary is entitled to one vote irrespective of how many power connections they may have. Candidate names will be listed in alphabetical order on the voting documents.
The confirmed candidates for the 2020 election are:
VAN DER JAGT Richard
WILSON Tommy Kapai
