Our Council is made up of a combination of eight elected and randomly selected Shared Interest investors.
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.
The Council meets three times a year. 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.
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 2019.

Election of new council member
The Council of Shared Interest comprises eight members who are elected to represent the views and interests of all Members of the Society to the Board of Directors and Management.
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. Each year a proportion of Council retires by rotation. In 2020 for example, one of Council’s Joint Moderators, Ashley Wyatt, 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 2020 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.
