BERA in the news

2020 BERA Council Elections

Following a very competitive election, we are delighted to announce the outcome of the 2020 BERA Elections.

The election for Council was highly competitive and three candidates have been elected.

Sarah Selezynov, Tanya Ovenden-Hope and Alison Fox will begin their 4-year terms in September 2020. They will also be invited to attend BERA Council in May as observers. 

Many congratulations to those elected and commiserations to the unsuccessful candidates. It was very encouraging to see such a strong interest in serving on Council and there will be further opportunities to join BERA Committees later in the year.
