Our volunteer Council is made up of eight members of Shared Interest Society, four chosen at random and four who have put themselves forward to be elected.
The Council meets formally three times a year and informally at the AGM in March. It also conducts discussions on relevant issues by email and telephone between meetings. They receive updates from the senior management team and minutes from Board meetings, with an opportunity to review and discuss them with the Managing Director, Secretary and sometimes the Board.
Each year a proportion of Council retires by rotation. In 2021 one of Council’s Joint Moderators, Martin Canning, will have completed his maximum term of six years on Council and will stand down.
Members of the Society are invited to consider standing as a candidate in the election which will be held in March 2021 by a postal ballot. If this role matches your interests and experience and you are able to commit the time, details are available for your consideration from Tim Morgan, Shared Interest Secretary. Members of Council are also happy to talk to prospective candidates.
The role of this group is to represent and reflect the views of membership to the Board of Directors. The main aim is to help keep the Society faithful to its mission and ensure the strategy of the Society and the interests of members remain aligned.
In accordance with the Society's rules one non-random member of Council retires each year on the basis of rotation and the last election was held in March 2020.
