AVA: This has been a momentous few months – for a variety of reasons, writes AVA chairman, David Llewellyn. Throughout the pandemic, the AVA has tried to ensure that you, its members, have received the information and support you need to address these business challenges. This work has been aided by the experienced input of our Board members.
You could be a part of the AVA team. The Board elections, like many others, were deferred for 12 months last year. The opportunity has now arisen because four positions are due for election in May, as part of the usual cycle. Some of the current Board members have put their names forward for re-consideration as part of the election process, but under our Articles of Association, we should provide all members with the opportunity to step forward if they would like to participate
These positions are:
- 2 x Machines & Components Representatives
- 1 x Commodities Representative: Robert Gormley, Nestlé Professional
- 1 x Vending Operator Representative: Diane Hunter, Apple Vending Ltd
If the company you represent is a full member of the AVA, you can apply for one of these voluntary positions on the board. We meet four times a year, to shape and guide the workings of the AVA to ensure that the interests of our members are best served.
To stand for election to the Board all you need to do is complete and return the nomination form. An election will then take place for any vacancy where we there is more than one candidate.
Please email the ‘2021 AVA Nominations Form’, a maximum 250-word brief (On your background and what you would bring to the role) and a head and shoulders photo of yourself to Penny.Rowell@the-ava.com
