UKONS Board Election 2021: Call for nomination of candidates

23 March 2021

Dear UKONS member,

We are writing to ask UKONS members to consider standing for election to the UKONS Board as we have three vacant positions. In order to nominate yourself you will require the support of two current UKONS Board members and your line manager. UKONS cannot offer remuneration to Board members for their time; however appropriate travel expenses and necessary accommodation are reimbursed.

The Board are seeking enthusiastic members who are committed to furthering UKONS aims and are willing and able to spend time helping to run the organisation.

We are specifically seeking members representing Wales and/or with experience in:

  • Acute Oncology
  • Career Development
  • Budget / Treasury / Finance Management


The Board meet quarterly for face-to-face meetings with interim teleconferences. Attendance at Board meetings is an important part of the role of a Board member; however most of the UKONS Board business is achieved by email and telephone outside of the Board meetings. Dependent on the role, UKONS business takes between at least two days to four days of a Board member’s time each month. Board members are required to help implement our strategic aims, which includes organising educational events and our annual conference.  Board members are also required to attend the UKONS conferences for each year they are on the Board.


Please give serious thought to standing for election to the Board. If you want to find out more about what being a Board member entails, please feel free to contact any of the current members of the Board.

A nomination paper for this motion is enclosed herewith and should be returned to Media1 Productions as detailed, by Friday 23rd April 2021. In the event of receiving more than three nominations, applications will be circulated to UKONS members and election shall be by email ballot.

Please contact: for a nomination form.


Yours sincerely

The UKONS Board
