GA Trustee/Director Vacancies
The GA is both a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. It is run by a Governing Body of up to fourteen people who are Trustees of the charity and Directors of the limited company. We would like to encourage members to seriously consider whether being a member of the Governing body is a way they could contribute to the GA’s charitable mission of furthering geographical knowledge and understanding through education.
Nominations are currently being invited for four Governing Body posts that become available from 1 September 2017:
- Junior Vice President, 2017–18 (one post), to be Senior Vice President 2018–19, President 2019-20 and Past President 2020–21. Nominees for GA Presidential posts will be required to demonstrate that they (i) actively uphold and support the aims, values and mission of the Association and usually (ii) have experience of the GA through holding other significant posts within the Association.
- Honorary Treasurer and Named Trustee, 2017-2020 (one post). Nominees will usually be required to demonstrate that they have considerable experience of the GA, either through previously being a member of the Governing Body or through holding other significant posts within the Association.
- Elected Member, 2017-2020 (two posts). The key role of an Elected Member Trustee is to ensure that the views and interests of the GA’s wider membership are represented on the Governing Body.
The closing date for receipt of nominations (by post or email) is midday on 4 November 2016. If there is more than one nomination for any post, a ballot will be held.
