The 2021 Management Committee elections are underway, with six candidates standing for four seats on the SoA Board.

Full members* will find candidate statements, ballot papers, and a reply-paid envelope bundled with the Autumn 2021 edition of The Author (or mailed to you separately if you live outside the UK). If you have not received your papers or candidate statements, please contact us.

Please cast your vote by post using the reply-paid envelope enclosed with your ballot paper. The deadline for receipt of all votes is Wednesday 27 October. If you have lost your envelope, post your ballot to the freepost address FREEPOST CIVICA ELECTION SERVICES on the envelope.

Remember, the authors you elect to the Management Committee are there to represent your interests in the future direction of your union. Be sure to read through the candidate statements thoroughly to help inform your decision.

We will announce the four new Management Committee members in October, and they will take their seats after the AGM on Thursday 18 November (details announced soon).
