2014 Elections - Voting is open!

12 February 2014

Which candidates do you think should be elected?


Exercise your right to vote in the UKOUG elections

As UKOUG is a membership organisation, all main contacts are entitled to shape the future of UKOUG.

It is vital that you do vote. By doing so, you are being part of the process of ensuring that UKOUG represents your needs to Oracle and that the products and services are the ones you require.

Please note: We did not receive enough nominations to run an election for President Elect. The Appointments Group, supported by the Board have decided to re-run the election in the near future. Additionally, no candidate has been nominated for the Appointments Group Lead, however in the interim Liz Penney has agreed to stay on in the role until her term expires in August 2014.  If you are interested in applying for either of these roles please contact Liz Penney Appointments Group Lead or Karen Smith, Head of Membership.

Why are the elections important?

The elections are important because they determine which communities are represented, and ultimately who steers your user group and represents your interests to Oracle Corporation, the Oracle community worldwide and to the Oracle eco-system in the UK.

Each membership has one vote per position, which your organisation’s main contact is responsible for administering.  If you feel you are better placed to make that judgement, perhaps as an active SIG member, then please contact them with your recommendation or you can be passed the right to vote.

By voting you are…

  • expressing your opinion as to the fitness of the elected leaders and their policies
  • ensuring that the people in charge reflect your views and champion the issues that are important to you.
  • helping to shape what UKOUG does and how it does it
  • having a say in who steers your user group

By not voting you are…

  • abdicating your right to influence
  • allowing the will of others, whose opinions maybe contrary to your own, to prevail
  • accepting that the future of the UKOUG is what it is without you being a part of that

Think about the candidates

  • Where have candidates come from?
  • What will their contribution be?
  • Which communities are represented and which are not

Voting is open until midnight on Friday 28th February 2014

Please think... and vote for the right people to represent you!
