Governor Elections 2017
Can anyone become a governor?
You need to be a member of the foundation trust, be over 16 years old and live in one of the areas that are up for election to stand, but membership is free and you can join at any time (you can do this online here) as long as your governor nomination form is returned by 17th October when nominations close.
If you live in one of these areas and want to stand but need to become a member, submit the membership form ASAP and please call us on 01925 662 139 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can quickly process your membership and get a self-nomination form to you from UK Engage in advance of the nominations closing on 17th October. UK Engage are an independent elections company who run our election process for us.
What happens if I stand for election?
Ballot papers for elections will be issued to members in the above areas to vote on who they wish to be their public governor - unless an area is uncontested (i.e. just one member standing for election).
The ballot papers will be issued at the beginning of November and the results of the elections will be reported through the trusts website week commencing 27th November.
Alternatively if you are interested in becoming a public governor and would like to contact the trust in the first instance please contact the Trust Secretary on 01925 662 139.
