Although it is still only February, we are already looking forward to the IPA Annual General Meeting (AGM), which will be held on 28 April 2022 immediately before the Annual Conference.
One of the highlights of the AGM is always the announcement of the new President and Office Holders, and the results of the elections for new Board members.
This year, there will be four vacancies to fill and, as before, we have instructed Civica Election Services to conduct the elections.
The Board of Directors of the Association are collectively responsible for the strategic direction and the proper functioning of the Association. Board members are at the centre of the profession, influencing its development and direction, as well as actively participating in the governance of the IPA, the only regulatory body solely focussed on insolvency.
As a member, you are entitled to put yourself forward to take up one of these prestigious posts within the Association.
There is no need for you to have existing links to the Association’s operations or current Board/Committee membership, and we are keen to encourage member representation from all areas of the profession, covering not only the various specialisms and practice sizes but also reflecting its diversity. No assumptions are made based on sex; race; age; disability; gender, gender reassignment or non-binary status; sexual orientation; married or civil partnership status; pregnancy, maternity and paternity; religion or belief. Eligibility is not limited to having long years of experience – fresh perspectives and insights are welcome. To start the process, all members will receive an invitation from Civica on 1 March to nominate candidates for election to the Board. So please look out for it in your inbox.
