Sorry Kate, I think there has been a misunderstanding. We did not want you to post an intro (we already know you!). I was wanting you to confirm that you were keen to be on the board and had asked Paula a couple of weeks ago to contact you and ask you to come and post that you were keen. The society rules state that we must have less than 25% of the board made of commercial members .. so we either need to have one less commerical member or find 2 more full members (which hasnt proved possible).
I'm not sure what you are referring to as 'active retailers' sorry. There are two retailers currently on the board. If you do wish to stand then one of the other two need to step down from their nomination or we need to vote for which two commercial members can stand.
