Board of Trustees and AGM

English UK's board of trustees and AGM

The board of English UK and the chief executive are responsible for the conduct of the association's business outside the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The board has 12 seats including a chair and vice-chair. Members serve for a maximum of three years and are eligible for re-election for a further period of three years, and at least one-third of the serving members retire each year. Elections to the board take place at the AGM, which generally takes place each May at the English UK Annual Conference.

We encourage members to participate as fully as possible in the association by participating in elections to the board, supporting lobbying, member surveys, conferences and the Annual Conference & AGM.

2020 board elections (postponed to 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic)

All English UK member centres can nominate candidates for the English UK Board of Trustees. Call for nominations will be announced in early 2021.

If you would like a nomination form, please contact the membership team.

If you are thinking of standing for election and would like to discuss the role, contact Chief Executive Jodie Gray who will be happy to hear from you. 

2019 annual report & accounts (December 2020 update)

The English UK board of trustees would usually propose member centres adopt the annual report and accounts at the AGM. Quorum is 20 members and the vote is usually passed by a show of hands. This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the board of trustees is asking member centres to review the 2019 annual report and accounts (you will need your member login) and vote to adopt them via remote vote. Voting will close at 17:00 on Wednesday 9 December 2020.

We strongly encourage all member centres to attend this annual event, not only for the conference programme but to make your voice heard.
