Request for Nominations to the Board of Trustees - this has now closed

It is required by our Memorandum and Articles of Association that at each AGM at least one third of Trustees stands down (with the opportunity to stand for re-election if so wished).  The maximum number of Trustees on the Board at any one time is twelve.

Nominations for election to the Board are invited from voting members of ACAT (ie fully paid up Practitioners, Psychotherapists, and Life Members), and from lay people.  Currently a maximum of two Lay Trustees are permitted on the Board at any one time.

Nominations will open on Wednesday, 24th March and close at noon on Wednesday, 14th April 2021.  Please note that nominations received by ACAT Administration after the closing date cannot be accepted.  A nomination form will be available on the ACAT website from 24th March.

The list of those nominated and therefore standing for election will be detailed in the AGM booklet of papers which will be available on the website in early May.  The booklet will also contain agenda, annual reports, annual accounts etc.  Please note that, due to current circumstances, the AGM booklet will not be printed and posted to members.
