Elections

The deadline for completing this form has now passed. A key feature of all Trusts is that they are run by their members for their members.

Elections are crucial to maintaining the democracy of Supporters Trusts. The democratic aspect of a Trust is one of its key characteristics and BCST will be following Supporters Direct best practice in order to ensure that:

  • Elections are free and fair 
  • Election administration is non-partisan and neutral 
  • The election serves members 
  • The election process is transparent and seen to be so

This year the positions up for grabs are Chairman, Treasurer and three board member positions. Anyone interested in running for a position must be a member of the Trust and the working group will give every assistance to prospective candidates.

Even if you're not interested in standing for a place on the board, or are not currently a Trust member please take an interest in these elections. This is your Trust and elected individuals will be representing your interests.
