AGM and Director Election 2020

Details of the 2020 BE Annual General Meeting and Director Election.

British Eventing is served by a non-executive Board and the Directors act on a voluntary basis. There can be up to nine Board Directors, and the Chairman is appointed by the Board. Except for the Chief Executive, who is a Director by virtue of their position, Directors can be elected (up to four Directors) or appointed (up to four Directors) to serve a term of four years. They can serve a further four years in direct succession if re-elected or re-appointed.

Les Smith is coming to the end of his first term in office and so BE will be holding an election for a Director at our 2020 Members’ Meeting.
