Six candidates are standing for four seats on the LMA Board, with the result due to be announced at the LMA’s Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 18 May. The ballot closes at 5pm on Thursday 5 May.

The six candidates are:

David Gittings, the LMA’s Chief Executive, said: “Once again, it is very pleasing to see so many senior candidates wanting to serve on the LMA Board. With six candidates for four seats, we anticipate considerable interest from our membership and a high level of participation in the ballot.”

The LMA Board has 12 elected members. Elections take place each year when one third of the elected members stand down.
