Information about the Board How often is there an election? It varies. Each year in October we invite people to nominate to the Board. An election will only take place if the number of nominations outnumbers the number of vacancies. If required, the election is undertaken via an online ballot and only full member organisations can participate. The new Board members are announced at the Annual General Meeting. How long does a term on the Board last? Two years. A person can choose to re-nominate when they reach the end of their term, but can serve no longer than six consecutive years. How is the Chairperson elected? During the first Board meeting following the Annual General Meeting, the Board votes on who will occupy the roles of Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary. These positions are held for one year. How often does the Board meet? Monthly.
