Nominate/choose a director
Nominations for Directors must be received no later than 1 February each year. If there are more candidates than vacant places then a ballot will take place, with each member being sent a voting paper in late March/early April.
The Vice-Chairman is appointed by the Directors from among themselves, and portfolios - Policy, Passenger, Infrastructure, Freight, Communications, Governance, Membership, Finance & IT - are assigned to the Directors by agreement among themselves.
If a director resigns or otherwise vacates a post during the year their place will remain vacant until the next AGM, when a new Director may be elected to serve the balance of their 3-year term. However, the directors may co-opt according to the rules stated in the Memorandum and Articles of Association. A co-opted director remains only until the next AGM (or the AGM after if they were appointed after nominations for new directors closed).
Go to Elections for details on how to vote or stand for election. You can also download a nomination form.
The results are announced at the national AGM held every May.
