BE members – Use your Vote!!

As eventers we are often trying to cram a lot into the day and forget to stay involved politically within the sport. Now is your opportunity to make your voice as a rider heard and to vote for the BE Director Elections.

I am very keen that riders make the most of their vote and it is very easy to do with just needing to login to your BE account. In a particularly low blow one candidate who has previously been on the board was getting her daughter to ask members to sign at the ERA ball with proxy slips and telling those who were being asked to sign, what they wanted to hear – lower entries, less foreign competitors (umm how is this supposed to happen with many events running a loss?!?). I appreciate we can be apathetic but this is not the occasion to canvas votes through misinformation and without fully discussing the outcomes.

So I ask you to read through each candidates details and vote for the one who appeals to you the most. It takes about 3 minutes and will mean that you have used your voice. We cannot moan about what happens at BE if we have sat back and done nothing.

Here is the breakdown of each candidate:

All very simple and easy!
