2020 CPSA Director Elections


Vacancies have arisen for the positions of West Midlands Region Director and one National Director to join the Association’s Board, following the current three-year term for each of these two posts expiring. These are for a three-year term to run from immediately after the Association’s AGM on 21st March 2020 to the AGM in 2023.

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. There is an expectation to attend Board meetings, AGM's and Championships throughout the year to represent the CPSA Nationally and Regionally.
