IIBA UK Chapter is run by a group of volunteers spanning the UK.

Our board of directors is elected by UK members and is responsible for setting the strategy of the chapter, and ensuring that we are progressing and developing for the benefit of IIBA UK Chapter members and the wider BA community.

Our directors are elected for a fixed term, and five of our current directors are coming to the end of their tenure. We are holding an election to re-elect or replace them.  

The following roles are open for election:

Marketing Director
Role currently filled by: Vacant role

Job Description (member-only link)

The Communities and Marketing Director roles have become vacant as Bindu Channaveerappa and Andrew Turner are standing down from their roles. I would like to thank them both for their contributions to IIBA UK during their time on the board.

I am very pleased that Sam, Christina and James are standing for re-election. They have made significant progress in these roles and delivered a huge amount of value to our members.

What’s involved in being a Director

All these roles are voluntary, and we ask that you commit to at least 2 days of effort per month to the role. This effort will be spread across the month, rather than being two individual days; typically our board members spend about 4 hours per week across evenings and weekends, which varies with workload. All of the roles will need support from volunteers to help with operational activities and it will be part of the Director’s role to identify, lead and support their volunteers.

General requirements of being a Director are as follows:

  • Member of IIBA & based in the UK
  • Serve a two year term and be able to commit a minimum of 2 days/month
  • Contribute to strategic direction of IIBA UK Chapter
  • Advocate on behalf of the IIBA UK Chapter
  • Lead/participate in key initiatives on behalf of the Chapter
  • Attend monthly Board Meetings and Events
  • Participate at Chapter Events

This is an excellent chance to have input into the future of IIBA UK, and I hope you'll consider standing. If you want to know more about the roles, or an informal chat about standing, please contact me at president@uk.iiba.org.
