May 2020 Council Elections 

Due to the impact of COVID-19 BPA Council of Representatives have decided to postpone all elections with immediate effect for 12 months.

All current Representatives terms of office will be extended by a further 12 months. This applies to BPA Council, BPA Board and the four BPA Service Boards. Presently it is proposed that all Elections resume in 2021 following the same timetable as intended for 2020 as below.

As a member-led association, the democratic process sits at the centre of what we do. In May 2021, a third of the seats on our Council of Representatives will be up for election simultaneously. We encourage all members to get involved either by standing for one of the positions or by voting for your chosen candidate. 

How will this work?

In May 2021 nominations will be open for 13 positions on the Council of Representatives. These positions cover a wide range of membership and regional groups across our association. To nominate yourself you will need to provide a 500-word nomination statement, a picture of yourself and a telephone number for BPA internal use.  

The process will see the nomination period for candidates wishing to contest the positions open in the first two weeks of May. With elections held for any position where more than one eligible candidate has been nominated, over the last two weeks of May. The successful candidates will be announced during the first week of June.  The table below summarises the positions that are coming up for election and the timescales.
