This is your time to get involved! SPRA is a highly respected, pro-active and forward-thinking trade association that works hard for its members and for the industry as a whole. A strong SPRA Council plays an important part in this and at election time we are always looking for dynamic individuals who want to give something back to our industry sector, who can promote the SPRA spirit and want to steer the organisation to even greater influence in both the roofing and wider sector to promote high quality, competence and sector standards.
Current Council structure: 1 Affiliate, 3 Associate, 4 Membrane, 4 Contractor, Technical Committee Chair
Number of Council positions available to vote for this year: 3 Associate, 3 Membrane, 2 Contractor and Technical Chair
According to the SPRA Articles of Association, the main Council Elections will take place over the coming weeks. This involves the election of Council members for each membership category and also the Technical Committee Chair. Any organisation can only hold one place on the Council, so it is important to elect the Technical Committee Chair (and Vice-Chair) before voting for other Council members commences. Once the full Council has been elected, they will then vote on who will be the SPRA Chair and Vice Chair.
Therefore, at this time, we are seeking nominations for both Council and the Technical Committee Chair & Vice Chair. This can be done using the same online form (scroll down to form). Once nominations have been received, we will then collate the information so that a two-stage process of voting can commence.
The timetable for this process is as follows:
Nominations for Council Members, Technical Chair (and Vice-Chair) open Mon 11th Jul at 9am
Nominations close Mon 1st Aug at 5pm
AGM Notice to include all nominees for above positions Wed 3rd Aug at 5pm
Voting opens for Technical Chair (and Vice-Chair) Thu 4th Aug at 9am
Voting closes for Technical Chair (and Vice Chair) Thu 18th Aug at 5pm
Voting opens for Council Fri 19th Aug at 5pm
Voting closes for Council Fri 2nd Sep at 5pm
So – please nominate yourself, or a colleague working at Director level within your company as per the deadlines above.
SPRA Council Elections – NOMINATION FORM
You can nominate yourself, or be nominated for Council only in the category (membrane manufacturer, associate or contractor) that your company is a member of.
The position of Chair of the Technical Committee has a seat on the SPRA Council, the Vice-Chair does not. You cannot hold the position of Chair of the Technical Committee and represent your company as a member representative on the Council for any category of membership. However this is possible for the Vice-Chair of the Technical Committee, as that position does not have a position on Council.
