Call for nominations for BGAJ Council

By 22nd March 2018July 27th, 2023No Comments

The Guild is inviting nominations for BGAJ Members who wish to serve as Guild Council Members from April 2018.

The Guild is managed by a Management Council of 11, who are appointed Directors of the Guild by Members at the Annual General Meeting, and are supported by the President and General Secretary.

This year’s AGM is due to take place on 26 April at Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Directors are elected to represent the interests of Members, Friends and Retired Members of the Guild, deal with routine management matters and organise events of interest and value.

The following Council Members / Directors are seeking re-election at this year’s AGM: Olivia Cooper, Jamie Day, Catherine Linch and Johann Tasker.

However, there is a vacancy for at least one Council Member or Director – a rewarding role which gives Members an opportunity to help guide the direction of the Guild and its work.

The full Council typically meets four times a year at the Farmers Club in London in addition to holding one or more online meetings and attending the AGM.

Each Director/Council member serves a term of no more than three years before they must either stand down or seek re-election at an Annual General Meeting.

If you would like to find out more about serving on Guild Council as a Director, please contact the Guild’s deputy chairman Catherine Linch.

Nominations must be received by Guild Secretary Nikki Robertson before midnight, 26 March. Nikki’s contact details are at the foot of this webpage.

Each nomination should be supported by two eligible members of the Guild.

More information about the Guild’s Management Council is available here.

The legal basis of the Guild as a Company Limited by Guarantee is detailed in the Articles of Association, which can be inspected here.

In addition, the Byelaws that define additional rules concerning membership and management of the Guild are available here.
