If you are a BWCE member, please vote now on the AGM resolutions and for who you would like to be on the board of your community enterprise.

AGM Resolutions

The AGM resolutions will be voted on at the meeting with a show of hands. If you are unable to make the meeting or if you would rather vote electronically in advance, please complete the electronic voting ballot here.

BWCE Board elections

The board elections will be completed at the meeting. If you are unable to make the meeting or if you would rather vote electronically in advance, please complete the electronic voting ballot here. Votes will also be collected via paper ballots brought to the meeting. If you would rather vote in this way your ballot can be downloaded here, but please remember to bring it to the meeting.

Candidate statements can be found here. This year Jon Bateman is resigning by rotation and will be standing for re-election. Jane Stephenson is moving from being an elected non-executive director to an executive chair and so won’t be standing for re-election.

As a result, the election this year will be for two directors to take the board back up to its full complement of 5 non-executive directors.

See here for information about the current board and executive team. We are particularly pleased to be welcoming Sonya Bedford, who will be joining the board as a co-opted director after the AGM. Sonya heads up the renewable energy team at lawyers Stephens Scown.
