Elections to the NGA Board of Trustees 2020

NGA trustees are volunteer governors/ trustees/clerks from across England who are ultimately responsible for directing the affairs of NGA, and ensuring that it is solvent, well-run and delivering the charitable objective: improving the educational welfare of pupils by promoting high standards and improving governance in state schools.

The board comprises a talented mix of experienced school governors/trustees/clerks who bring to the table a wide range of valued business, education and charitable sector skills and knowledge. NGA’s board of trustees meets five times a year – four formal trustee meetings, and one strategy day. 

This year NGA sought nominations for six regions: East Midlands, East of England, London, South East, South West and Yorkshire & Humber.  The closing date for nominations was Friday 9 October 2020. The election results will be announced at the Annual General Meeting of NGA to be held on Saturday 28 November 2020.
