Vote now in our President and Trustee election 2019

Make sure you cast your vote before 4 November to elect two new Trustees, including the President.

Two votes

The roles of NCT President and Trustees are vital in ensuring that our charity is run effectively and acts in the best interests of all parents.

This year there are two separate votes. One is to elect NCT’s next President from two candidates. And the other is to choose one new trustee to join our Board. There are six candidates standing for this role.

Please note that the President is also a Trustee for the duration of their term as President.

You have until 4 November to vote, so make sure you have your say before then.
