Hi all

Just to confirm that the application deadline for the new OxVox committee closed at midnight last night.

We're delighted to say that there have been a number of really excellent members who've put their names forward!

Details will be emailed to members soon and obviously ahead of the AGM on Saturday 28th April. The AGM will be held at the Stadium with a 'kick off' time of 12.30.

But hey, for now, let's all just focus on getting behind our team and supporting the lads to secure those points we need!

COYY's!

Cheers

Jem

I hope that we have a diverse range of candidates standing at the election and look forward to reading their manifestos. I think it is time for a fully open and transparent approach and the end to the secrecy that has been in evidence in the past. Members should always be informed of what’s in the pipeline and if their are candidates standing that promise this change then they will get my support. No to NDAs and secrecy of meetings.

You had your chance to change anything you didn't like, but no you would rather bleat from the sidelines.
Since it's creation, the good people at Oxvox have put a lot of their free time into trying to help this club move forward, they will always be damned if they do and damned if they don't do the right things in other peoples eyes, if people don't like what they see change it from within as it has been done in the past.

The committee is free to join you know, oh! apart from the countless hours of unpaid work you have to put in, you will also need thick skin to help from people who obviously know better but for one reason or another just can commit and help out.

Blah Blah Blah.

This is a Democrat vote and we will be given details of each of the candidates and their thoughts and visions. It is then up to the members who decide to vote as to who they vote for. All your bluster and infighting with some on this forum will count for nothing when I decide who I vote for. As long as it is a fair vote we the members will decide, that is how a democratic vote works. All your bleating about hours and hours of unpaid work is not up for discussion as those that put their names forward know what is entailed from the start. Many of us give up our time for free, and don’t keep on about it, it’s whats called “life”.

I look forward to reading your manifesto, as you have seemed so unhappy with the recent past I assume your standing

And this is where you have to be fair to Myles and Mark Sennett. They stood for re-election a couple of years back, they picked up a fair few votes, but they didn't get in. That to me gives them the right to comment on here about what the successful candidates have achieved since then.
The posters who love to criticise the committee but don't then stand for election have no such mandate and have become a bit of a cancer on the forum.
When u say a fair few ? Didn’t they finish bottom ?

Interesting points.

Can I ask, do you think the current OxVox 'management' have been more secretive and less transparent than in previous times?

By the way, we have never signed any NDA's in my time on the committee.

OK, thanks. That's a straightforward answer to a straightforward question.

I'd personally be very interested in how you are able to come, so confidently, to that conclusion?

Can I ask, have you been an OxVox committee member in the past?

Cheers

And if there are the same number of applicants as those stepping down, then there will be no election. That is also democracy, but I'm sure you'll find fault with it.

PS: Are you going to answer Jem's earlier question, you replied quickly enough to his first one?

An irrelevant question so NO

So, just for clarity, is it, NO, you aren't going to answer the question., or NO, you've never been an OxVox committee member?

As previously asked, I'd also be interested in why you feel things were so much more open, transparent and with no secrecy in the past?

Cheers

I mentioned on another thread that it would be useful to know the forum identities of anyone applying for the Oxvox committee so we could review their views as on here and to avoid any mis-naming. For example I thought T'ai Chi was a former chair of Oxvox - sorry if incorrect.

Out of interest, when will we be informed of the number of applicants and their names please?
