Election of regional representatives

In addition to their role as an RSPCA Council member, the duties of a regional representative are concerned largely with representing regional and branch views at Council.

Our branches are separately registered charities that contribute substantially to the provision of animal welfare and other services throughout England and Wales.

Regional representatives are elected every three years and there are 10 regional seats to be filled in 2014.

In January 2014 all branch secretaries will be notified that the elections of regional representatives are to take place. Branch secretaries are required to bring the matter before their branch committee for the purposes of nominating a candidate.

Branch secretaries must return completed nomination forms to the Chief Executive by Friday 31 January 2014.
