No change to NFUS election rules

NFU Scotland will not be proposing any changes to the rules concerning how long its president or vice-presidents can serve in office.

A resolution was received earlier this year from the union’s Perth branch requesting the constitution be amended to allow a president to serve longer than four consecutive years in office.

At present a president cannot serve longer than two consecutive terms in office where the length of each term is two years.  

Following a consultation of all 71 branches, while approximately one-third wanted a change, the majority supported the status quo.

However, the board of directors may reconsider the present terms of office for the vice-president position some time in the future.
