We are seeking nominations for UKCP Chair.

UKCP is calling an election for the position of Chair of UKCP. The Chair provides leadership to UKCP and its Board of Trustees by ensuring that everyone remains focused on the delivery of the organisation’s charitable purposes in order to provide greater public benefit.

Civica Election Services (CES) – formerly Electoral Reform Services (ERS) – has been appointed by UKCP to manage the nomination and voting process for the Chair Elections, as they have done for previous UKCP elections.

All details of the role, relevant forms and instructions on how to submit your nomination can be found on the CES website.

To be eligible to submit your nomination you must have been a full individual member of UKCP for at least 2 years and be in good standing. UKCP defines a registrant to be in good standing if they have met the following criteria:

1) they have paid the relevant membership fees to UKCP and

2) they have not been subject to any form of sanction, suspension or disciplinary censure.
