Notice of CILT (UK) Board Elections 2021 & Request for Expressions of Interest

Boards can only represent the full diversity of our profession if they are diverse themselves: that is why we need members at different stages of their careers and from all sectors.

Being a CILT (UK) board member is about more than turning up to meetings. It’s about sharing your knowledge, views and experience with colleagues and the organisation to make sure what CILT is doing and saying are the right things, things that matter to our members and the wider profession. It gives you the chance to express yourself professionally that is sometimes more difficult within the constraints of our day job roles.

CILT (UK) Limited is a company registered at Companies House and a registered charity and is governed by a board of directors who also act as the charity’s trustees. The board is responsible for the stewardship and governance of the Institute’s activities and for the formulation and monitoring of the Institute’s strategic objectives. A number of Board members are elected by the Institute’s membership for a four-year term. Vacancies will arise in summer 2021 and we are seeking three board members to bring the complement of elected members to six. Election to the Board is via a process of nomination, qualification review by the Nominations Committee and if required by election.

In seeking to follow the guidance of the UK Charities Commission, the Board is seeking to attract a broad representation of its members and members’ interests. It is particularly keen to appoint members whose skills or background include:

  • Education/Training/Qualifications
  • HR and Diversity and Inclusion
  • Risk/Finance
  • Governance/Legal
  • Marketing/Communications

Whatever your career stage, sector or background, you can stand for election, as long as you are a member of the Institute holding the grade of MILT, CMILT or FCILT.

The deadline for the receipt of Expressions of Interest is the 15 April 2021. Skills will be considered for compatibility with existing Board members by the Nominations Committee in April. If the number of suitable nominations received exceeds the number of vacancies, then voting Institute members will be invited to take part in an election. An election would take place 30 June 2021, with successful candidates taking their places on the Board in July 2021. Key dates and details of candidates for election will be announced in the May edition of Focus magazine and on the website.
