Voting for Trustees

When there are more than two candidates for a single trustee position the ICS must follow a two stage voting process. This is in accordance with UK Company Law.

Round 1: preferred candidates (underway)

  • The first round identifies the preferred candidates. ICS members are supplied with a list of the individuals wishing to be appointed.
  • Each ICS member votes for their preferred candidate.
  • Votes are counted after the deadline. The candidate with the highest number of votes is deemed the preferred candidate and proceeds to Round 2.

Round 2: final confirmation

  • Following Round 1, the preferred candidate is submitted for formal election at the Annual General Meeting. This a YES/NO vote and is a necessary step in order to comply with UK Company Law.
  • Voting takes place prior to the AGM online and at the AGM by paper ballot.
  • The ICS office ensures there are no duplicate votes and then announces the results following the AGM.
  • Candidates are appointed if a majority of ICS members vote in favour of their appointment, i.e. that they have more YES votes than NO votes.
