ORG Board nominations extended until Thursday 10pm

Following my letter to ORG supporters on Monday, we have had a flurry of nominations requests.

Several have asked for an extension to the deadline in order that they can complete their nomination by finding a proposer and seconder as required by the rules.

In order to be fair to everyone, I am extending the deadline for nominations until Thursday at 10pm.

The election is for three board members for a term of three years. As before, the Board will appoint extra members to balance skills and experience. You can find our current Board members here.

Information about the election and the Board's duties is here:

The Board is the governing body of the Open Rights Group, and meets every two months. It appoints the Executive Director, oversees the work and strategy of the organisation, ensures that we fulfill our aims and objectives, and grows in size and effectiveness.

They appoint the Advisory Council to help with policy. They approve the annual accounts and deal with our legal duties as a company. Board members are also welcome to attend Advisory Council meetings and help with the professional work of the organisation.
