What's the whole 'board elections' thing all about?

Why do we do this?

  • If you're a member, you own the society, it's important you make sure it's governed well
  • Contested elections are a great way to make sure that governance is fair and open
  • Having a route for members to sit on the board protects members from bad decisions
  • Voting members into the board ensures transparency and representation

What happens?

  • Members are nominated to stand in an election
  • Nominees are consulted to ask to confirm to be considered for election
  • Elections are held and we vote
  • Members become board members
  • Board members can receive training on their directoral responsibilities
