15 October 2018

When we called for nominations for the vacant positions on our Board of Trustees, we were seeking a Vice-Chair Trustee and a Trustee.

We received one nomination for Vice-Chair – Andy Cottom – and he is, therefore, elected unopposed as the new UKCP Vice-Chair. Andy will take office from 1 January 2019. Read Andy’s candidate statement.

As Andy is a current serving UKCP Trustee, his move to Vice-Chair has left an additional vacant Trustee position. This means that there are now two trustee positions up for election.

Election candidates

Code of Conduct for UKCP elections

We have developed a code of conduct for UKCP elections. It applies to all UKCP members as well as candidates, their proposers and other ‘active’ supporters.

The objectives of the code are to:

  • ensure that campaigning by candidates is carried out in an honest, fair and respectful way, and
  • protect the standing and reputation of UKCP candidates, members, officers and employees.
