GTC members vote to retain the name Guild of Television Cameramen

Following a motion voted at the 2013 Annual General Meeting of the Guild of Television Cameramen, a ballot of GTC members was held on the subject of whether to retain the current name or to change it.

 

The results of the GTC Name Change Ballot were announced at the GTC Council Meeting on Sunday 17 November.

The Statement from Sue Hynard, Independent Returning Officer is below:

I, the Returning Officer for the GTC Name Change Ballot, hereby declare: 

The number of votes cast: 154                                                                                                                                      

The number of votes ruled invalid as they arrived after the deadline: 3                                                      

The number of votes ruled invalid as they contained no mark (*): 1                                                             

The number of votes in favour of the name change: 46

S E Hynard

 

The ballot was carried out by email and by return of voting forms to The Returning Officer by 12 noon, 15 November 2013.

The vote was called at the last AGM in May 2013 and featured statements from Peter Rance and colleagues, as well as Dick Hibberd, following articles in  Zerb and GTC In Focus stating both camps.

The breakdown of votes shows a 67.5% vote in favour of keeping the name as is.

The number of votes cast equates to 15.8% of membership eligible to vote.

Therefore the name of the Guild of Television Cameramen will continue for the foreseeable future.

Darren Bramley GTC Secretary
