Are you interested in becoming an ELFT Governor?

28/06/2016

Governor Elections 2016 are on their way!

Governors are collectively known as Council of Governors and they play an essential role at ELFT providing valuable contributions and involvement to ensure our services are responsive to the needs of our local communities. Our governors represent the interests and views of our members, users of our services and the public. They also hold non-executive directors to account for the performance of our Trust board.

Members and staff can nominate themselves to become governors. We will be holding our Governor Elections in the next few months and writing to eligible members and staff in due course inviting them to stand in our Governor Elections 2016. We would like to encourage interested members and staff to put themselves forward for this important role. Members and staff interested in standing would need to have an interest in working positively with ELFT to help us to provide better services for local people. Governors are required to meet six times a year. The role is a voluntary; however governors receive expenses and training.

We will hold Governor Election Briefing sessions to help our members find out more about the role of governors and the election process. Details about theses sessions will be advertised to members and staff.

Currently the following seats on our COG will be up for election (this may change nearer the time of the elections). To be eligible to stand, you must be a member of ELFT, be aged 16 or over and live in one of the constituencies holding vacant seats or work for the Trust to stand as a staff governor.
