As part of the drive to modernise the way the HCSA works, we included the option of Electronic / Email voting in the Constitution which was agreed when we moved to a Charity based organisation. This will not only enable all members to have a vote on key issues, it will also provide a mechanism for soliciting views of members opinions on other matters which the Exec team and or Trustees would benefit from hearing.
Over the past few months a number of options to enable this form of voting have been considered and we have now reached a conclusion on the system that will be utilised. We are also working on a process and procedure with appropriate governance to support the implementation of this important change so that we all have the necessary confidence in making this work.
I am sure you will agree this is a step in the right direction, and signals the broader intent of both the Chief Officer and the Trustees in driving forward further modernisation and transparency.
Further details will be made available shortly, and in the meantime we would welcome any feedback on this change.
