TREC GB Board Regional Representation nominations open on Thursday 1st November 2018 and close at midnight on Friday 30th November 2018. All nominations must be sent by the closing date to for Board representation. Only members who have joined (or rejoined) TREC GB as either a Red, Blue or Supporter member by 1st November 2018 are eligible to be nominated or to vote.

The TREC GB Board consists of 2 representatives from each of the 11 TREC GB Regions (each region incorporating one or more clubs affiliated to TREC GB).

One representative from each of the following regions is due to be elected in 2018:

1.  Central

2.  Eastern Counties

3.  NE England

4.  N Wales

5.  North West England (North & North West)

6.  Scotland

Each member of the TREC GB Board must be prepared to become a trustee of TREC GB and, therefore, there are several points to consider if you would like to stand for the Board. You will be expected to attend, by phone, a conference call once a month lasting approx. 2 hours and to be willing to liaise with your region and represent their views on topics before the Board. 
Please note that you can only stand to represent the region in which the club that you have nominated (when you joined/rejoined TREC GB) is or, if you didn’t nominate one, the region in which you live.

The requirements for being a Trustee are outlined in the following links from the Charities Commission website:
