NOT TO BE TRUSTEED
I'm surprised to be contacted today by Voluntary Action LeicesterShire, asking if I'd accept a nomination to be one of their Trustees. I'm sent an election acceptance form with my details and asked if I can verify this so that it can be included amongst ballot papers before VAL's forthcoming Annual General Meeting. This is the first I've heard of it and when I ask who has nominated me, it turns out to be someone I don't believe I know, from an organisation with which I haven't worked with. I'm flattered (assuming, of course, that it's not simply a mistake on the part of the person who did the nominating) but in all good conscience I can't accept this, so I turn it down.
