In order to elect the Trustee Board, members choose one or two electoral college representatives from among those standing within a community of interest. The electoral colleges share the same categories as the communities of interest.
The electoral colleges are:
Work with young people from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds
Work on active citizenship or volunteering
Work with disabled young people
Work specialising with disaffected young people
Sport and physical activity
Faith-based youth work
Young people’s participation and children’s rights issues
Cultural, creative and arts work
Electoral colleges use postal ballots to nominate a pool of candidates for election to the Trustee Board. The council will then elect ten trustees, one from each electoral college, at the annual general meeting. The remaining eight trustees will be four co-opted members, the chair, the treasurer and two vice-chairs.
More information on the different trustee positions is available from the NCVYS office and is circulated with the election mailing.
