Nomination and Election of the SCVO Policy Committee 2014
SCVO is governed by a Management Board - the Company Directors – while our Policy Committee determines policies and positions which are in the best interests of the third sector. An explanation of the membership and remit of Policy Committee is provided on the opposite page.
Elections to the Management Board and Policy Committee are held annually. A postal ballot for places on the Policy Committee is conducted over the summer.
Policy Committee vacancies result from a requirement in SCVO’s Articles of Association that one third of its members retire each year. If a retiring member is both eligible and willing, he or she may stand for re-election. The current membership of Committee is shown below.
I encourage your organisation, as a valued member of SCVO, to exercise your right to nominate a candidate/s for election to our Policy Committee. The ability of SCVO to influence policy and create an environment where voluntary action can thrive depends on an active and engaged membership which reflects the diversity of our sector.
