WES Strategy

Details of the current strategy will appear on this page

How is the Board chosen?

Since 2020 the Board and President have been elected by and from the Members for three year terms to provide stability for WES. To ensure that fresh voices are added to the Board, a third of the Directors are elected every year for three year terms, to provide innovation for WES.

For the first three years of the new governance, there are transitional arrangements. In 2020 the President and two Directors were elected for three years, three Directors were elected for two years, and three Directors for one year. .

If there are vacancies, the Board can co-opt (appoint) Directors to fill the vacancies, and an election for any remaining term can be held at the annual elections. The Board can also co-opt up to three more Directors to a total of 12 Board Directors if it requires additional expertise.
