Trustee Election: Live Hustings

Date/time range
Monday 4th 7:00pm - Tuesday 5th July 2022 8:30pm

Your chance to meet and put your questions to the candidates standing in this year's Trustee election.

Every year, two members of our Trustee Board — the group of volunteers who guide our charity — step down and you, our members, elect two new Trustees to serve. This year a whopping 11 candidates are vying for a place on the Board.

Before voting ends in late July, we're holding two live hustings events over two nights on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th July. These will be Zoom meetings where each candidate speaks directly to the voters, who in turn can ask them questions about their suitability for the role. So, if you've got something you'd like to ask one or more of the candidates, or if you just want to come along to get a sense of what each one is like, register now. Both events are hosted by STAMMA Trustee Deborah Johnston.
