Seeking Members: Board of Governors, and the NEC

Things are always in a weird way after a General Election here in the UK, and it really goes without saying that this definitely applies right now. But things must go on as normal, and it is with that that I continue, as the Pirate Party UK Nominations Officer, uphold my pirately duties.

As per the party constitution, it is a requirement that I, on behalf of the party, should announce any vacant Board and NEC positions where an election can take place every 26 weeks. As such, I am happy to report that we are currently seeking the appointment of two Governors to the party's Board. For this position, an internal election has already been triggered following a member of the party stating their intention to run for a Board seat. The internal election for the two Board seats is now open on our internal election platform, and the Nominations process will be open for two weeks.

In addition to the Board, we are also currently seeking several members to fill positions on the NEC (National Executive Committee). These include the Leader and Campaigns Officer seats. We are currently also seeking a new Nominations Officer. If you would like to run for any of these positions, let us know on the party Discord server, or send us an email to nominations@pirateparty.org.uk.

We look forward to hearing from you!
