ABDO votes to amend its election rules

ABDO has voted to pass amendments to its election rules for certain roles

Members of the Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO) have voted to pass amendments to the Association’s rules regarding who can stand for certain roles.

The changes will mean that people elected from within the ABDO board will be able to take on either the full presidential role or to split the role with someone else, meaning if an elected person only wants to chair the board, another member can be elected as a ceremonial president.

ABDO president Clive Marchant said: ‘We hope that these changes will encourage and enable more members to come forward to seek election to the board and consider progressing to president or chairman of the board. It will also enable those outside of the board to take on a ceremonial presidential role.’
