Annual General Meeting

This year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place on 5 December 2019. There will be two vacancies for the CIPP Board which will arise from January 2020 and CIPP members (those in the categories of associate, full, fellow and Chartered Member) are eligible to stand for election.

The applications will be assessed by the nominations and appeals committee which will short-list candidates for a ‘first past the post’ ballot of members. 

The Board believes that it is important that the governing body reflects the full breadth of the Institute’s activities and the diversity of its membership. It also needs to ensure that it covers the competencies necessary to govern the Institute effectively. The Board has identified that this year there is a need to strengthen its expertise and skills in the following key areas:
•    Experience of financial reporting
•    Operation of a complex organisation and oversight of business activities

Applications would, therefore, be particularly welcome from members with the skills and experience to contribute to the Board’s work in these areas. Please click here to review the role and person specification for Board Director.
