Following a successful Member Advocate election campaign and a great voter turnout (up 14%), we're pleased to announce that Debra Lilley has been re-elected as Member Advocate.
On hearing the news of her re-election Debra commented:
“I am humbled to be returned to the board by the electorate, and very impressed that my competition also had significant votes. I hope that they will continue to volunteer with UKOUG and help us deliver to you our members.
I endeavour to keep up to date with what members are doing, and want, via the SIGs, but again offer to talk to any member who has questions alongside Linda and Fiona your other elected board members.”
Member volunteers underpin every aspect of our activities at UKOUG and we’re always looking for proactive people who can spare a little time to share their thoughts and experiences to improve the value of what we’re offering to our membership.
Thank you to the other election candidates Paul Fitton, Paddy Spencer and Mike Waite for standing for the Member Advocate role and for their part in driving member engagement around the election. We hope to be working with you all in a volunteer role in some capacity over the coming year.
Also a big thank you to everyone who took the time to consider the candidates and main contacts for casting your votes, it’s fantastic to see this increased level of engagement from the membership which is so vital to the future and success of your user group.
We'll be looking to run an election campaign for the role of President Elect later this year - more information will be available nearer the time - if you’re interested in the role please do contact the Appointments Group.

If you’d like to get involved and volunteer with UKOUG but aren't sure what’s involved, please contact Emily Owen for an informal chat about available vacancies and how you might be able to help.
