    As you will know nominations for the board election are now open: Election

    Unusually there are three places available this year, which should make things interesting.

    Who would you like to see stand from the secondary market community?

    What would you like to see in their election statement?

    Personally I'm looking for someone who can see through the 'smokescreen' and 'spin' of recent events and focus on gaining better understanding amongst the membership and sorting out the real issues e.g. when are we going to get 1-10 year renewals, free online transfers, waiting lists?

    I'd also like to see someone ask questions about internal issues such as LTIP and HR - it may have nothing to do with us the membership, but we elect the directors and it is our money they are spending!

    These often veer toward rather pedantic and operational considerations and away from the vision and mission of the PAB.

    :D

    I think would certainly be interesting to see Dale there, pretty sure Dale would be more like Nick than stender :p

    Well, I'm flattered indeed. I don't know whether my 'no bullshit' style would work, but I'd have a go if Graeme stood on a 'cut through the cobblers' hustings.

    Someone who will deal with crooks like 1&1 etc. - customers (and domainers) have been screwed over for long enough!

    This is a wind up ;) You guys that know me know exactly how long I'd last. I mean, down to how many minutes on the first day. Anyway, I'd feel like a fish out of water, like that new pseudo-elected person in The Islamic Republic of Iran that self-styles himself "I'm a dinner jacket" or however you pronounce it with his tongue.
