Details of the 2021 BE Annual General Meeting and Director Election.
British Eventing is served by a non-executive Board and the Directors act on a voluntary basis. There can be up to nine Board Directors, and the Chairman is appointed by the Board. Except for the Chief Executive, who is a Director by virtue of their position, Directors can be elected (up to four Directors) or appointed (up to four Directors) to serve a term of four years. They can serve a further four years in direct succession if re-elected or re-appointed. However, they must retire for two years if they have served two consecutive terms. Following this break, they can then be re-appointed or stand for election again.
As Jane’s term is coming to an end and Helen West previously elected at the AGM last year has since been appointed Chief Executive, we have two vacancies for Elected Directors on the Board. Elected Directors are voted into their positions by you, the Members.
