Sheep farmers who value the role of producer-run organisations, or have ever wondered, or grumbled, about the British Wool Marketing Board’s operation or service, are invited to consider serving as a Board Member. 

The following Members will reach the end of their present term of office in March 2014, and all have offered themselves for re-election:

-Trevor Richards (English Southern Region)

-Bedwyr Jones (Welsh Northern Region)

The Wool Board is the largest producer co-operative in Britain, with around 40,000 registered sheep farmers.  Depending on the interest in each seat, elections will be held in February 2014 and those appointed will hold the office for three years, from April 2014.

The Board brings together a wide range of skills.  Members normally expect to work approximately 30 days a year attending Board Meetings over a period of two or three days each month, as well as other local and national BWMB business. Remuneration of around £8,800 is paid annually, plus expenses.

To be eligible, candidates must be nominated in writing by at least ten registered wool producers in the relevant regions who will each need to supply their address, authorised signature and registration number.
