Annual Reports

You can download the annual reports:
Railfuture national Board
Railfuture has a nine-strong Board who are elected by the entire membership.

Nominate/choose a director
Nominations for Directors must be received no later than 1 February each year. If there are more candidates than vacant places then elections will take place with each member being sent a voting paper in late March/early April.

Elections
Since 2008 Directors have had a three-year term, with one third of the directors being elected by the whole membership each year. Since May 2016 the chairman has been appointed from within the directors rather than being elected separately.

The Vice-Chairman and all of the directors with a portfoilo, such as Policy Director, Campaigns Director, Finance & IT Director and so on are appointed by the Directors from among themselves.

If a director resigns during the year their place will remain vacant until the next AGM. However, the directors may co-opt according to the rules stated in the Memorandum and Articles of Association. A co-opted director remains only until the next AGM (or the AGM after if they were appointed after nominations for new directors closed).

Go to Elections for details on how to vote or stand for election. You can also download a nomination form.

The results are announced at the AGM held every May.
