Nominations for Icon’s Board of Trustees closing soon!
Time’s running out! The deadline for nominations for Icon’s Board of Trustees is this Sunday, 7th October.
This year, there are four vacancies for seats on the Board – one of which is reserved for Northern Ireland, which also happens to be the location of our forthcoming conference in June next year.
The successful candidates would become Trustees at the end of the AGM on 22nd November 2018 and remain in office until the end of the 2021 AGM. Elected Trustees serve an initial three-year term and may be re-elected for a second term.
Whilst candidates must be paid up members of Icon, they do not need to have specific skills or experience. Candidates may be Accredited, Associate, Graduate or Student members, and while some can provide the fruits of their experience there are also those who are new to the profession and provide a fresh perspective. Both bring valued points of view to Icon’s Board of Trustees!
As it’s an election, the key issue is to persuade other members that they should vote for you - so spend some time thinking what you should write on the nomination form. Your proposer and seconder may be able to help as they may recognise strengths of which you were unaware.
The role is non-executive, and it is anticipated to require the equivalent of on average 1-1.5 days per month. This includes board meetings which currently take place four times per year during weekday afternoons plus one to two annual Trustees’ Planning Days, usually in London and committees or working groups that fit Trustees’ interests and skills.
