Following the election of three new Elected Directors at our 2018 AGM and the appointment of the former Minister for Sport, Tracey Crouch MP as our Senior Independent Director, we are now inviting nominations for home country Elected Directors.
We really are encouraging everyone within the Parkour/Freerunning community to think about these roles on our Board, as there has never been a better time to positively impact the continued growth and development of Parkour/Freerunning across the UK.
We are seeking passionate and committed individuals who can continue to help develop and maintain Parkour UK’s strategic focus towards its future development and sustainability.
We are continuing to strive for a more diverse Board of Directors, therefore we would particularly welcome nominations of women, BAME groups and people with disabilities.
We are now seeking nominations from Parkour UK member organisations for the following roles:
Elected Director (Home Country)
In accordance with our current Memorandum & Articles of Association – 26.1 & 28.1 Elected Directors shall be nominated for election by a Voting Member in respect of that Home Country, subject in each case to the approval of the Board. The election of Elected Directors shall be decided by votes cast by the Voting Members in respect of that Home Country at the 2019 Annual General Meeting.
We can pay travel expenses and provide a full induction to the NGB’s work. You will be expected to attend at approx up to six Board meetings a year. In addition we would encourage your attendance at a number of Parkour UK meetings and events, as well as our member organisations events.
