The 2020 GCCF elections are being run by CIVICA, formerly known as Electoral Reform Services (ERS). CIVICA are the UK’s leading provider of election services, with over 100 years’ experience of administering elections, ballots and consultation processes.

Following the agreement of the resolution to enable a ‘virtual’ vote this year, the GCCF Board have liaised with CIVICA to plan the election, and we are pleased to be able to confirm the details.

The election process has been scheduled to take place between 30 September and 18 November 2020. Key stages of the process are outlined in the GCCF 2020 ELECTIONS – KEY DATES document. By starting on 30 September 2020, we can enable dispensation clubs (if approved) to fully participate including nominating (as agreed by the majority of the GCCF Board).

The Board and CIVICA have produced a frequently asked questions (FAQs) document GCCF 2020 ELECTIONS - FAQs which should cover any key questions you may have about the election process.

CIVICA will be in touch will all delegates on 30 September with details of how to nominate and vote. A link for self-nomination for Investigations and Disciplinary Committee elections will be published on the GCCF website on 30 September.
