Our Governors are elected by the people who have joined us as members. You can join as a member now by ringing 01603 287634 for an application form.
Our governor elections are currently open. The deadline for receipt of nominations is 30th October 2017 and results of the election will be published in early December. For more information, please visit pre.ukevote.uk/nnuh
We hold annual elections to fill any vacancies which have arisen during the year. Members are sent ballot papers to select the candidate(s) they would like to see become Governors.
Before an election takes place all members are advised through the Pulse magazine which is sent to members quarterly. In order to stand as a governor in the election members are required to complete a nomination form.
All prospective governors are expected to:
• provide a supporting statement (up to 100 words) describing why they wish to be a governor
• complete a declaration of interests
• There will also be an opportunity to attend an induction session which will provide more information on the role of governor and what is involved
Where a seat is contested then voting will be by secret ballot, using the ‘single transferable vote’ method where preferred candidates are ranked in order.
If you are interested in becoming a Governor please contact our Membership Manager.
