Election 2024: Choose Your Management Committee

As the UKBC moves to its fourth year, we now are moving to elections from our membership to stand on our management committee. We are in need of committee members who can commit time and their skills for club development. There is no renumeration or honoraria for committee members. Budgerigar owners from all backgrounds from pet owners through to breeders and exhibitors are encouraged. You do not need nominating. We need a photo and a candidate statement of what you can offer the club, particularly with regard to the list of jobs that need doing to maintain the club. We are also keen on developing future collaborations with other clubs to promote budgerigar keeping so feel free to mention the clubs you are a member of and the committees you serve on. This will be posted on our Facebook groups where our members can ask questions. You are welcome to add whatever contact details you like and there is no limit on campaigning, but this is limited to the single thread on our groups so they are not overloaded. Members will vote online and the new committee announced at the AGM later in the year. Candidate statements will be approved by Kevin Eatwell (with edits being suggested to the candidate) to ensure the content matches our constitution and is non inflammatory. The deadline for submission for these is the end of July with online voting taking place in September.
