The members forum acts in an advisory capacity to the Board of Trustees. It can submit questions or recommendations to the Board and may, if necessary, call for an election to remove elected trustees, the chair or vice chair of UKCP.
Any UKCP member may attend forum meetings but only elected/nominated members forum members have a vote. Each UK nation or region can have two representatives at the forum.

The members forum is convened and chaired by a moderator who has a non-voting place on our Board of Trustees. This creates a clear link between the members forum and Board of Trustees, ensuring the moderator is able to represent and communicate the views of the forum directly to the Board, without having to take on the responsibilities of a trustee.
