Elections 2021

This is the time of year when we call for volunteers to step forward for election at the RSGB 2021 AGM which will take place on 24 April 2021. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic we will, once again, be holding this online and further details of how to participate will follow nearer the time.

The Society is run primarily by its Members, and we seek volunteers who are willing and able to give their time and enthusiasm to ensure the Society continues to develop and thrive.

Most importantly, our President Dave Wilson, M0OBW will retire at the AGM and we need to elect someone to continue the excellent work that he has undertaken for the last three years.

We also have elected vacancies for one Board Director and three Regional Representatives. There are three Regional Representative vacancies because the current post holders were co-opted into a vacancy after the last AGM. Each one has indicated their willingness to stand for election but applications are also welcome from all RSGB Members living in these particular regions.

  • Region 2
    Scotland North and the Northern Isles (Andy Burns, MM0CXA)
  • Region 6
    North Wales (Liz Cabban, GW0ETU)
  • Region 12
    England East and East Anglia (David de la Haye, M0MDB)
