REMINDER - Elections to the Cochrane Governing Board: invitation to stand for election

Cochrane Governing Board

REMINDER - The deadline for your nomination is Friday 31 July 2020.

Dear Cochrane Members,

Cochrane is seeking to fill two places on the Governing Board that will become vacant shortly and you are invited to stand for election. One place has specifically been designated for an individual from a Lower- and-Middle-Income Country or Territory.

These roles are open to any Cochrane Member who wants to shape Cochrane’s strategic direction, help to ensure its work remains effective and innovative, and support the organization to deliver its mission. You should bring high levels of personal integrity to the role and demonstrate understanding of and commitment to the Cochrane community, but you do not need to have served in a leadership position before.

What is the Governing Board?
Cochrane's governing body is the Board, with a majority of its members elected by you - Cochrane Members - and some appointed directly by the Board. The Board is responsible for overseeing the development and implementation of the organization’s strategies and policies. Cochrane is a registered charity in the United Kingdom and the Board serves as the organization’s Board of Trustees. Trustees carry ultimate responsibility for the organization.

How can I stand for election?
Cochrane is a collaboration whose strength is in its diversity and international reach. The Governing Board wants to make sure this is reflected in its own membership and so for this election, one of the two places available is restricted to a Cochrane Member who is a citizen or resident of a Lower- and-Middle-Income Country or Territory (LMIC). The other place is available to anyone who is a Cochrane Member, including citizens or residents of LMICs.
