Being a board member requires you to play a full and effective role in the working of the board, board committees and special purpose working groups. The representational aspect of the role requires board members to listen and understand the needs and interests of the Association’s members, and to communicate the actions the NPA takes on behalf of members. The NPA board has representatives from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, which facilitates an exchange of learning to support progress across the UK.


For an informal discussion about the role of an NPA board member, please contact the Returning Officer, Gareth Jones g.jones@npa.co.uk . The election is being administered by Civica.
