We’ve even provided within the MarketingHub (click here to log in or sign up free) some example Regional Council election copy for social media posts. We also have a dedicated 2021 Regional Council elections page on the England Athletics website which can be found at www.englandathletics.org/regcouncil.
As well as the above assets featuring on this webpage, there is also an exclusive interview with London regional councillor and former international athlete Nadia Williams talking about her role as a regional councillor.
Please do feel free to help promote Nadia’s interview within your club / member body as a way of encouraging your members, particularly those most likely to be interested, to consider submitting their self-nomination form to become a regional councillor in 2021.
Becoming a regional councillor is both a rewarding and privileged role with the unique opportunity to help shape the sport for the future benefit of their clubs and members.
Regional Councils provide a vital link between satisfying the specific needs and priorities of their local members and athletics and running clubs whilst contributing to the overall future health and success of athletics and running as a sport.
