Voting is now open for the Civic Voice Trustee election.

Voting to elect new trustees to decide who should run Civic Voice is now open. There are four candidates for three vacancies on the Board.

These posts arise due to a clause in our constitution meaning trustees should seek re-election after a three year period. The results will be announced at the AGM on Saturday 26th October.  Civic societies who have joined Civic Voice are eligible to vote. If you are unsure as to whether your civic society have paid membership up this year, do get in touch. The ballot closes at 5pm on September 11th and only votes received before this date and time will be accepted. We will accept votes via email and post.

A voting slip along with candidate biographies and personal statements to aid your decision are available on the Civic Voice website for you to download:

The results of the election will be announced via a special issue of 'civic update' in September and you will have the chance to meet your new trustees at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) taking place in Wakefield at 9am on 21st October. The formal notice of the AGM will be sent in October but please note the date in your diary now. Voting is open until 5pm on September 11th, 2017.
