Winners of 2018 board elections were announced at WCVA’s Annual General Meeting and Lecture, including six brand new board members.

The election ran from 30 October to 13 November and included a record 25 nominations, featuring a diverse range of candidates from across the sector.

The results of the ballot were announced at the WCVA Annual General Meeting and Lecture on 22 November and approved by the members present.

126 member-organisations voted in this year's election, which was the first ever to accept votes and calculate results online.

Full members of WCVA can nominate and elect members to the board. The Board can only hold 16 members at a time, and it is legally and financially responsible for the whole organisation. They meet four times a year to discuss how the charity can deliver its mission, vision and goals.

The new members joining the board are as follows:

Thank you once again to everyone who voted, nominated and ran for election to the board. We look forward to working with our new trustees!

We'd also like to thank the hard-working and dedicated trustees that have stepped down this year for their commitment to WCVA and the wider 3rd sector.
