Nominations for CAMRA’s National Executive elections in 2021 are now open. All the relevant documents, including the Nomination Form & Declaration, Role Description, Electioneering Guidance and a Q&A sheet can be downloaded from camra.org.uk/beer-festivals-events/members-weekend/agm-and-national-executive-elections-2021

The deadline for receipt (by email to ken.owst@camra.org.uk) of nomination forms is 3.00pm on Thursday 28 January 2021. Please note that this is a change to the previous process to accept all nominations by email.

All nomination forms will be acknowledged and all sponsors contacted to validate the nominations.

Hustings Statements

In addition to providing signed Nomination Forms, all candidates must provide hustings statements answering the following 3 questions in not more than 100 words per question:

  • What experience do you have of volunteering within CAMRA and how do you consider these experiences will be useful if you are elected.
  • What relevant skills and experiences do you have from life that will enhance the National Executive and what would you expect to contribute.
  • If elected, what vision do you have for the next four years as you influence the organisation as a member of the National Executive.

This should be accompanied with a suitable photograph, which will be produced in the March edition of What’s Brewing and displayed online.  In addition, a separate husting statement of up to 1,000 words should be submitted (if candidates wish to do so) which will be uploaded to the AGM page on the CAMRA website and the electronic voting site managed on CAMRA’s behalf.

Candidates will be invited to produce a 2-minute video, if they wish to, to be included on the website and Discourse. Guidance and support will be given to all candidates in February after close of nominations and this is not a mandatory part of the process.

All hustings statements should be sent in Word format to The Company Secretary at ken.owst@camra.org.uk by email – to arrive no later than 3.00pm on Friday 5 February 2021.
