ELECTION TIME!

Don’t forget that there are opportunities to become a MEC Trustee or a Directly Elected Forum member. Details below; closing date 31 May.

Trustee Elections Nominations are invited for the positions of MEC Chair Elect and Treasurer.  Are you affiliated to a Corporate Member Organisation; or are you an Individual Member of MEC? Do you want to help shape MEC as the voice of music education and the umbrella organisation for music education across the UK? Now is the time to put yourself forward to serve the MEC membership as a Trustee.

Trustees should not be affiliated to any of the Standing List organisations on the MEC Forum. So, if you are not affiliated to a Standing List organisation – or are willing to forego your organisation’s place as a Standing List member if you are elected – are interested in becoming Chair Elect, and can commit to serving MEC for 6 years (2 as Chair Elect; 2 as Chair and 2 as past Chair) then please download the information and nomination pack here.

For the role of Treasurer the commitment is 3 years and the information and nomination pack is here. Don’t think that this role is purely about looking after the finance – most of the financial work is carried out by MEC’s Management Services, so as Treasurer you will be full member of the Trustee Board – including sitting on the Forum – and will help to set the agenda for MEC.

Make sure that for either position your nomination reaches admin@mec.org.uk by no later than 5pm on 31 May.  If you have any questions about this, please in the first instance e-mail Angela at admin@mec.org.uk

Forum Directly Elected Member Elections Nominations are invited to serve on the MEC Forum as a Directly Elected Member. Are you affiliated to non-Standing List Corporate Member Organisation; or an Individual Member of MEC? Do you want to help shape the priorities on which MEC focusses over the coming years? Now is the time to put yourself forward to serve on the Forum. Directly Elected Forum members do not represent their organisation; they act as the checks and balances to the discussions between the Standing List organisations, and provide insight and expertise from their own individual experience. Download the information and nomination pack here.

Make sure that your nomination reaches admin@mec.org.uk by no later than 5pm on 31 May.  If you have any questions about this, please in the first instance e-mail Angela at admin@mec.org.uk
