UKHCA's Annual General Meeting will take place on Tuesday 9th October 2018 at 4.30pm after the UKHCA England Conference 2018.

The venue for both events is:

Election of Board of UKHCA

A vital part of the business to be conducted at the Annual General Meeting will be the election of members to the Board of UKHCA. If you are a Full member organisation and would like to seek election to the Board, making strategic decisions for the benefit of the Association and its members, you will need to complete and return the Nomination Form and the Declaration of Eligibility.

Whilst all nominations are welcome, we are particularly keen to bring in experiences and perspectives from members of black and minority ethnic groups, in order to help rebalance the ethnicity within the board.

In line with the banding structure (as set out below) and the Articles of Association only certain Board places are available for election this year.

The structure of the Board is:

  • Band 1: 6 places
  • Band 2: 2 places
  • Band 3: 3 places
  • Scotland: 1 place
  • Wales: 1 Place
  • Northern Ireland: 1 place

The Bands reflect different sizes of member organisations:

  • Band 1: 1 - 3 branches
  • Band 2: 4 - 20 branches
  • Band 3: 21+ branches


UKHCA Board vacancies

Two Board Members from Band 1, one Board Member from Band 2 and three Board Members from Band 3 are standing down (Section 38.1 of the Articles). As a result, there will be vacancies on the UKHCA Board as follows:

  1. Band 1: 2 places
  2. Band 2: 1 place
  3. Band 3: 3 places

To be eligible for one of the available places, your organisation should

  1. (for the Band 1 vacancies) have between 1 and 3 branches and a head office based in England
  2. (for the band 2 vacancy) have between 4 and 20 branches and a head office based in England
  3. (for the band 3 vacancies) have 21+ branches and a head office based in England

Only one authorised representative from a provider member organisation is entitled to become a Board member.

Please note:

  • Board members are elected for a three year term without the need to seek re-election. They may then seek re-election for a further two three-year periods after which they must stand down for a minimum of one year before seeking election again.
  • The officer posts within the Board (Chair, Vice-Chair, Hon Secretary and Treasurer) are chosen by elected Board members.
