DIRECTOR ELECTIONS & VOTING

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.

At this AGM two elected Director will retire from their positions, Nigel Taylor and Chris Tattersall. That means there are 2 vacancies for Elected Board Directors.

We have received 2 nominations, from Jenny Levett and Joanna Moxon. BE’s Articles of Association (Article 41) only require an election where there are more nominations for Elected Director than available places. Since this is not the case here, no election is required and therefore both candidates are elected unopposed.  To read more about the candidates click here.

Resolution 1:

HOW TO VOTE FOR THE RESOLUTION

·        Online voting opens 15th November

·        Online voting closes 7th December

The result will be announced at the AGM on 8th December 2022.

Please note: only eligible BE members are able to vote.
