British Elite Athletes Association is seeking a new chair

British Elite Athletes Association (BEAA) is seeking a new chair

The Chair will hold the Board and Executive Team to account for the organisation’s mission and vision, providing inclusive leadership to the BEAA Board, ensuring that each Board member fulfils their duties and responsibilities for the effective governance of the organisation. The Chair will also support, and, where appropriate, challenge the Chief Executive Officer and ensure that the Board functions as a team and works closely with the entire Executive of the organisation to achieve agreed objectives. As with all Board members, the Chair will also act as an ambassador for the BEAA, representing and promoting it to external stakeholders as appropriate.

This role is historically undertaken by a retired athlete. However, on this occasion the BEAA wishes to invite applications from a wider range of candidates with relevant experience, who may be appointed subject to the necessary governance approvals.
