Vote in this year’s BASC Council election
Voting is now open for this year’s BASC Council election, with two national seats available.
This year’s election sees 12 candidates standing for two national seats, with the results set to be announced at this year’s AGM on 20 May.
BASC Council is the voice of the membership, and so it’s imperative that you have your say on who you, as a member of BASC, wish to represent your views.
Council meets six to seven times per year, leading on strategic decisions and BASC policy to ensure that the association’s members – and shooting as a whole – have their interests represented in all arenas.
What binds Council together is a shared desire to protect and promote of all forms of shooting. Council members bring to the table a mix of skills and experience gained from working or volunteering in the shooting and non-shooting sector.
Angela Davies, BASC’s executive director of business management, reinforced the importance of voting in the elections, saying: “BASC members can play their part in ensuring the association benefits from the best possible governance by voting in this year’s Council elections. This is your chance to have your say on the future of BASC.”
