Call for New Board Members

Fitted

Monday April 30 2018 09:34 AM

Apply now to become a Director 

We are currently seeking candidates preferably with MS research or community development experience to go on to our panel of potential Board members. Members, Branches, Council, the Board and staff may propose candidates. All nominations must be proposed and seconded by Members. 

Nominations of retiring Board members seeking re-election must be submitted to the Nominations Committee. Other nominations may be submitted either directly to the Nominations Committee, or alternatively, under the provisions of Article 56 of MS Ireland’s Constitution, nominations may also be submitted directly to the Registered Office (MS Ireland’s National Office, 80 Northumberland Road, Dublin 4) and marked for the attention of the Company Secretary.

The Nominating Committee will review all nominations, except those submitted to the Company Secretary under Article 56, and will recommend to the Board candidates to go forward for election by the Members at the AGM. Any Member nominated via Article 56 will have their candidacy put before the Members at the AGM.

The Nominating Committee will take into account the range of skills necessary for board membership and where possible, the geographical spread, the gender balance, the experience and the qualifications of the candidates. 

All candidates must be in compliance with the requirements for Directors as set out in the Companies Act 2014, the Charities Act 2009 and MS Ireland’s Constitution and will be asked to sign a declaration to that effect. The Nominations Committee, on behalf of the Board, needs to be satisfied that no candidate, who legally cannot serve as a Board member, or who has been disqualified or restricted from being a Board member, is put before the Members at the AGM.
