Nominations can be for existing directors reaching the end of their terms, or for other members, and if there are more candidates than vacancies, a postal ballot is held. 

All nominations will be announced via the website and through the investors newsletter. 

Duties of an investor member 

  • Attending Board meetings, which are currently held quarterly in Manchester
  • Additional work or discussions carried out between board meetings (normally by email)
  • Attending Annual General Meetings


The term of office for directors is two years and a fee of £150 per meeting attended is currently payable in lieu of expenses.


No specific skills are sought, although experience of co-operatives and / or social enterprises would be useful. We just ask that nominees have an interest in helping Ethical Consumer to achieve its mission.
