The following Directors will be standing down:
- Julie Webster
- One vacancy due to the resignation of Bob Dredge on 1st January 2019
(Bob has been appointed as Financial Director of the 2022 World Championships).
The Board will be seeking to replace the above two Elected Director vacancies at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in 2019 on Friday 19 April 2019.
The roles are for full terms of three years.
We welcome applications from any person who is eligible to undertake the role of a Company Director.
British Orienteering's Chair Judith Holt, says:
"This year we have two vacancies for elected directors to be voted on to the Board at this year’s AGM. These positions are open to any member of British Orienteering; no previous committee work is necessary. If you have knowledge of how organisations work and can step back and think strategically about the sport then you could contribute to the work of the Board."
"Particular areas of expertise such as commercial fundraising or marketing are useful but the essential is to be able to assimilate a wide range of views and work with the other Board members to reach decisions about the ongoing governance and future of the sport."
"We are looking for people from diverse backgrounds to stand for the Board, including gender, race, age, disability, to give us a rounded point of view. In 2019 we particularly want to encourage people from other parts of the UK to put themselves forward for election. Our current elected directors all come from England and we would like to extend our reach further afield across the UK."
All applicants must be nominated by two British Orienteering members.
In the past year, we have been meeting in Manchester and Birmingham and we are looking at ways that we can meet in other parts of the country to make the board more accessible. We pay for any reasonable travelling expenses.
For further information please contact Chief Executive Peter Hart or Chair Judith Holt.
Nominations have to please be submitted by 17:00 Wednesday, 27th February 2019.
