Dear Mariane and Robert
Thank you for your response.
I have not received my post of self nomination,so I am concerned. I recall there was some similar problem last year and we (Marianne ,you and I) had an email conversation. Perhaps others are also not receiving some emails and are unaware!
Please confirm that my self nomination has been received. Secondly, unless I am mistaken the call for nominations did not list a seconder.
Are there any other items needed that were not stated on the "Call", I will work on it!
