We have had a closer look at the call for nominations and its now looking pretty fishy. There is no AGM date; there is no mention of the RAPS spill; and they are calling for another clinical psych to be nominated.
As we anticipated in our post yesterday – and thanks to a clever RAPS supporter – the early election now appears to be nothing more than an attempt to stack the board with more clinical psychologists.
We had it wrong when we said the nomination for a College position was for a ‘non-clinical’. In fact the nomination was for another Clinical General Director.
RAPS can see no justification for this as there are already two clinical general directors remaining for the next term – Aaron Frost and Deborah Wilmoth – and the new Constitution clearly states that only one General director should be from the Clinical College. Why would we elect a third one?
The board needs to explain to members what is actually going on!
