However, not having personal access to any other members, I seek volunteers to propose and second my candidacy.
If anyone would be interested in supporting my candidacy, please let me know.
Modern tech would make it much easier for an overseas member to join the committee, be active and participate in meetings, etc - i.e. by Skype etc.
By all means - all it takes is for someone (a member) to nominate and second a member to join committee. I don't think there's any difficulty with for example signing, scanning and forwarding forms electronically (perhaps another committee member would clarify this).
