Council Election 2022

Four seats on the British Skydiving Council become available for elected members at the AGM on Saturday January 29 2022. Three seats are for full 3-year terms and one seat is covering a casual vacancy for 2 years. The election by full (voting) members takes place not at the AGM but in advance, over Christmas and the New Year.

Council members are non-executive Directors of British Parachute Association Ltd, trading as British Skydiving, and among their most important responsibilities are setting the strategic direction and assuring the good health of our Association. British Skydiving welcomes nominees who have skills and experience that can enhance the strategic direction of the Association and from members who have the required time to dedicate to Council.

The process will be run by an independent election scrutineer, UK Engage. Nominations are invited from 09:00 on Friday 1st October on the hub.ukevote.uk/britishskydiving voting website. Nominations close at noon on Monday 01 November. Council members are non-executive Directors of British Parachute Association Ltd and among their most important responsibilities are setting the strategic direction and assuring the good health of our Association.

Visit the nominations site for further information including eligibility and how to stand. Each nominee needs a proposer and seconder who, like the nominee, must also be full members. Nominees and their proposers and seconders should first familiarise themselves with the role profile of a British Skydiving Council Member (form 297) and with the duties and obligations of Council Members as Directors (form 178) as set out in the Articles of Association. An election will be triggered if there are five or more candidates.
