Election of Board directors

The following directors are retiring by rotation: Frances Brace, Pete Brown, and Annabel Smith. Robert Humphreys, as a co-opted director, must also retire. This leaves us with three vacancies on the Board.

The application period to stand for election has now closed. Frances, Annabel and Robert have chosen to step down. We are incredibly grateful to them for their many contributions to the Board over the years.

Pete will be standing for re-election, with four further applications received from Maureen Heffernan, Emma Inch, David Jesudason and Malin Norman.

As this year’s AGM is taking place online, the Board has approved an alternative method of online voting which will take place in advance of the AGM. Find more detail below.
