TABS is holding Board elections in 2017. The timetable is as below:
Nominations start: 23rd August 2017
Close: 18th September 2017
Voting starts: 3rd October 2017
Ends: 2nd November 2017
Results: By the 6th November 2017
The week commencing 21st August all members will receive an invite to nominate people to stand for a Board position. This is being sent by the Electoral Reform Society who are running the elections for TABS.
TABS encourages members to participate in the elections – either by submitting nominations for the Board and/or to vote. TABS needs a good selection of nominees for the 3 new Board places, and lots of votes to ensure we get the best candidates.
Representing the Bikeability industry as a TABS Director has a number of benefits – it is an opportunity to contribute to the continued growth and professionalism of the industry. It can also be considered of value to the organisation you work for, showing their commitment to the business. And, of course, it is a great personal development opportunity, illustrating your personal commitment, ability and aspirations.
The TABS Board needs directors with skills such as: marketing/communications; finance and fundraising; training (inc quality assurance); campaigning, business development; membership recruitment and services, governance, event management, stakeholder engagement/partnerships and research. Ideally the Board should reflect the diversity of schemes and organisations involved with Bikeability (eg. small, medium and large schemes; independent schemes, local authorities that either deliver in-house or outsource etc.)
