At the AGM on the late afternoon of Monday 20 June members will be asked to consider recommendations from the Board or made from the floor, for Vice Presidents (typically MPs, AMs, MLAs, MEPs, members of the House of Lords). They will also be asked to consider recommendations made by the Board for Fellowship, an honour bestowed in recognition of services to the association or the industry we represent.
In order to ensure your views are taken into account, regardless of your ability to attend the AGM during annual conference in Southport 20/21 June, suggestions (in confidence/not attributed) or formal nominations from yourselves or your organisation (attributed) are urgently sought for both Vice Presidents and Fellows.
The detail of current holders and the criteria for each appointment can be accessed from the “Governance, events & activities” page on Britishdestinations.net. See first and last bullet points at: https://britishdestinations.net/governance-events-and-activities/
To make a suggestion or nomination simply email me indicating who and why and stating whether you are happy for this suggestion or nomination to be attributed to you or your organisation or not. If not then, provided it meets the criteria, I will happily make the proposals for you to the Board or AGM as appropriate.
Alternatively it’s not too late yet to book to attend conference and nominate at the AGM in person: https://britishdestinations.net/annual-conference-2016/ .
