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.
