The Wheel's 2018 Board Elections

The Wheel's Board Nominations 20178

The nominations process for potential election to The Wheel’s Board of Directors is now open!

Are you interested in playing a key role in how ‘big-picture-cross-sector’ issues are shaped and influenced?

These issues include:

  • The reputation of the community, voluntary & charity sector in Ireland;
  • The importance of appropriate & proportionate regulation for the sector;
  • Recognition of the essential role the sector plays in Irish society and how the relationship between the sector and the state is shaped and considered.

If you are interested, a leadership role on the board of directors of The Wheel, which will have an impact across the whole sector, could be for you.


Three new board members will be elected from amongst our Full Membership panel at The Wheel’s Annual General Meeting on, 24 May 2018. 

If you believe you could be one of them or if you know a person associated with a Full Member organisation of The Wheel who would be suitable, then please click here for more information and download a nomination form here.

Please note that completed nomination forms must be returned to us before noon on Friday 6 April 2018.

All nominations received by the deadline will be reviewed against the pre-set published criteria (in the Information Sheet). If there are more than three eligible nominations after that review from amongst the Full Membership of The Wheel, an election will be held across the entire Full Membership panel in the form of a postal ballot. The results will be announced at the AGM on 24 May 2018.

As we believe there will be a lot of interest in these vacancies amongst the Full Membership of The Wheel, we hope that you will consider this sooner rather than later if you are interested.

We encourage all our members to consider this opportunity. In consideration of its current gender balance, the board would particularly encourage nominations of women from our membership. 

Need Assistance?

If you have any questions about this matter please contact Deirdre Garvey, CEO of The Wheel: or at 01-454 8727.

Alternatively, please send in your completed nominations form to our Membership Administrator, Jon McBride by 6 April 2018:
