Appointment of additional director

The recent election of Directors resulted in a Board which comprised two women and seven men.  This ratio is neither representative of our membership (34% female) nor in line with the diversity target set for all governing bodies of at least 30% from each gender.  The Board has therefore exercised the provision in the Articles (section 18.13) to appoint an Additional Director to improve its representative balance.   It was unanimous in inviting Morven Shaw to join the Board.  Morven has agreed and will serve as a Director until 18 March 2021 (when the next election is due).
