Election of Non-Executive Directors

Are you a BWCE member and would you like to get more involved in running your company?

Non-executive directors play a key role in representing member interests on BWCE’s board. They also help to guide the organisation and hold the executive to account. Their term of office is normally three years. This is an important time for BWCE with a new business plan being developed for presentation on 27th September at our AGM.

If you are not sure what will be expected should you be elected as a non-execuctive director, rest assured you will be fully supported by existing elected members, experienced in what’s involved. BWCE’s board is structured with up to 5 non executive directors and 2 executive directors. See here for information about the current board and executive team.

In line with our rules, a number of our non-executive directors must stand down each year. However, retiring directors have the option to stand for re-election alongside other members who may wish to become involved.

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 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.
