How to Join Council
To join Council you need to take part in our annual elections. All Council members are elected by the membership and stand for an initial three year term. On completion of the first term council members are invited to stand for re-election for a second term of three years..
Council elections take place once a year between May and July. All Ordinary and Concessionary members are invited to submit a nomination to join council. Nominations are online and overseen by Civica, an independent provider of election and voting services. Members submitting a nomination must be proposed and seconded by two other BEVA members,
Online voting is open to ordinary and concessionary BEVA members in August and closes early September each year. New council members are confirmed and approved at the AGM in September, which this year will take place virtually.
Nominations for our 2020/21 Council are now closed. We will be recruiting new council members next year and further information will be announced in May 2021.
