2019 CPSA Director Elections


Vacancies have arisen for the three positions of South West Region Director, East Midland Region Director and a National Director to join the Association’s Board, following the current three-year terms for each of these posts expiring. These are for a three-year term to run from immediately after the Association’s AGM on 23rd March 2019 to the AGM in 2022.

To continue with the development of the Association the Board needs members with the appropriate skills, board experience and knowledge to operate successfully at strategic level. Members who can bring significant relevant business and governance capability to the Boardroom to complement the skills and knowledge of the existing directors, along with a good knowledge and understanding of clay target shooting, are particularly welcome.
