Archery has always been the most inclusive of sports and we would like our Board to reflect this. More women, young people and students are taking up the sport. More athletes are coming through our Performance pathways and Academies. Your voices need to be heard! Age is immaterial as long as you are 18 and over and we are interested in applications from all abilities, gender, race and religions. All you need is the knowledge and skills to input into the strategic direction of Archery GB.
Our sport is experiencing unprecedented growth and development. It faces fresh challenges as well as fantastic opportunities - and if you think your background, skills and experience could make archery in Britain even stronger and more successful, then it's time to think about standing for election to the Board.
You will be working alongside our Chief Executive David Sherratt and our three Independent Directors, Chris Mortlock, Mark Davies and Neil Armitage. You will be helping to complete the transition to a skills-based Board, changing the way Archery GB operates and, potentially, be in at the start of a new beginning for archery in the UK. Directors meet four times a year as a Board, usually at weekends. The estimated time commitment is around 20 days a year.
Interested? You can find out more about what the role involves in the Governance>Elected Directors section of the website.
To apply all you have to do is send your CV and letter of application by email (including your full name, membership number and length of membership) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests for informal/confidential discussions can also be sent to this email address.
Your application must be supported by three Electors. Each of these Electors should send an email of support, including your name, to email@example.com, giving their full name and membership number and state how they qualify as an Elector.
You are also required to complete sections 3 and 4a of the Company House Information Form and return that with your application.
