This autumn Anne Sebba, Patrick Barwise and David Kynaston will retire from the Management Committee. Anthony Horowitz retired earlier in the year. The authors remaining will be Alison Baverstock, Andrew Crofts, Gregor Dallas, Juliet Gardiner, Philip Gross, Daniel Hahn and James Runcie.
After it's meeting on 15 January, the Management Committee discussed and voted for the following nominations to fill the four vacancies: Nicola Beauman, Nell Leyshon, Andrew Lycett and Stewart Ross. Click here to read personal statements from each of the nominees.
If you wish to make an alternative nomination, it should be submitted in writing to Nicola Solomon, the Chief Executive, by Tuesday 30 April, signed by two members of the Society and accompanied by a letter signed by the candidate expressing willingness to serve (candidates may include an address of up to 500 words and a photo, if they wish). We welcome all nominations. If additional nominations are received, there will then be a postal ballot. If there are more nominees than available places, voting will determine who is appointed. Voting papers will usually be sent out with the Summer Author.
If you are interested in exploring the possibility of serving on a committee or otherwise becoming more directly involved in the Society's activities or if you have any questions about the election process, you are warmly invited to contact Nicola Solomon at any time to discuss things further.
