Elections 2016

The latest round of elections to our Council of Governors ended on 22 August. We are very pleased to announce that we had an excellent response in both the number of candidates who stood for election and the number of people who voted in the ballot.

You can see a report about the ballot vote here, and the ‘elected unopposed' report here (this report shows which governors were elected without a ballot, as there were fewer people standing for election than there were seats).

The full list of our governors can be found here.
