The Transport Planning Society is seeking nominations from members for up to 4 Elected Director positions on the TPS Board. The positions would commence immediately after the AGM on 11 March 2021.  Board Directors are elected for an initial three year term.

Board Directors have a key role in supporting the Society and helping it achieves its mission of facilitating, developing and promoting knowledge, understanding and best practice in transport planning through 4 strategic objectives:-

1) To ensure that the Society remains influential in setting the transport agenda at a national, regional and local level;

2) To provide structured training to support the career progression of transport planners;

3) To grow the membership, particularly in geographical areas and sectors where transport planners are under-represented.

4) To provide the widest possible forum to engage on relevant and topical transport planning issues, and improve the public understanding and the image of transport planning.

All TPS members are welcome to apply - the only prerequisite is that you are a committed individual, interested in helping the TPS achieve these aims. A place on the Board offers an unrivalled opportunity to influence the role and perception of the profession and the way it is represented by the Society. The commitment includes you attending six Board meetings per year ( currently online) and actively participating in the management of the Society's activities. It is therefore essential that you have the support of your employer.

A copy of the announcement letter is available here.  Completed nomination forms and a 150 word supporting statement need to be returned by Monday 5th February 2021. Should we receive more nominations than spaces available, a member ballot will be held prior to the AGM. 

In addition as the current Chair's term of office ends in March 2021, we are seeking nominations for Chair, a role that lasts two years. The Chair's nomination form is attached here.

The Agenda for the AGM is attached for download.
