Radio Academy Members can vote now in the election to appoint three new people to its board of Trustees.
There are 31 candidates on the ballot, all of whom put themselves forward to help run the Academy as part of its governing body.
The election is open now, and each Radio Academy Member can vote up until the ballot closes at 4pm on 20th January.
The Trustees are the vital governing body of The Academy, who oversee the strategy and direction of its activity. Trustees serve a three-year term and are expected to play an active role and attend a minimum of six board meetings per year, by video conference or in-person in London. They should bring with them significant experience and understanding of the UK audio sector.
The Academy seeks to attract Trustees with a diverse range of skillsets, from a range of professional and personal backgrounds, to provide the charity with a comprehensive knowledge base to serve our members’ best interests.
The three new Trustees will replace Dennie Morris, Aradhna Tayal and Steve Taylor, who served their three-year terms from 2017 to now.
The 31 candidates on the ballot are: Adele Cross, Alan Jarvie, Andi Durrant, Andrew Bantock, Andy Coote, Becca Bryers, Colin Slade, Danny Lawrence BEM, Darby Dorras, David Harber, Hedley Finn, Jem Stone, John Clayton, Jonathan Blake, Kathryn Anastasi, Kyle Evans, Liza Ward, Louisa Wells, Lovejit Dhaliwal, Muna Ahmed, Nina Robinson, Pete Wagstaff, Peter Curran, Ray Paul, Ricki Lee, Sophie Malcolm, Toby Foster, Tony Barnfield, Tony Gosling, Tony Patti, Will Jackson.
