My 3 partner cards have been allocated to the same people for several years. My year renews in June and their years all renew in November. When my 2018 renewal came around I think it meant that their cards were valid until the end of their subsequent year which will be November 2019. Hopefully that's correct so far?

In June 2019 my year renewed and I once again nominated them for partner cards which I think means that it will extend their status from November 2019 to November 2020 but that period hasn't kicked in yet because they already have status until November 2019 based on my nominations in June 2018.

I would really like to change one of the silver nominations to a young guy I know who flies a lot but not enough to make silver. BA are saying I cannot change the nomination because I already nominated someone in June but as far as I can tell those nominations don't take effect until November 2019. Is there really no way to adjust this without waiting until June 2020? Apart from the hassle of the admin at BA's end I don't think I'm asking for something that's unreasonable as - as far as I can tell - their status as a result of my nominations in June 2019 has not been applied yet.
Something's not right. I don't think it's possible to nominate someone for the same status until their card expires (NB not their membership year, which is a sore point). I had a silver partner card left to allocate and although my daughter's membership year was up, because her silver card was still valid until the end of the next month, I couldn't allocate the silver card to her.
