Elections

Electing new members on to boards.

The Election Process

There are a variety of ways of re-electing the committee. One way to provide continuity is for a third of the committee to retire each year. Some organisations hold elections every two years. The minimum and maximum number of Management Committee members and the process for election is often set down in the governing document. Remember that it is good practice to review your governing document and make changes or amendments to it to ensure that your organisation is governed effectively.  If your organisation  is a charity you may need permission from the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland to change your governing document.
