Do you want to help move BSAC forward and play a key role in its growth and development? Then nominations are now open for BSAC council.

BSAC is accepting candidate nominations for the Council positions that are becoming available in May 2023, with the closing date of 31 January 2023 for applications to be submitted. The 2023 Election sees some key Council positions becoming available – Vice Chair and Honorary Secretary as well as three Council member posts.

Skills and experience

Council is the board of directors of BSAC, and so it is your business leadership that we need rather than your diving expertise, although we do have a shared passion for diving. 

BSAC is particularly looking for volunteers with specific experience or expertise in:

  • Charity or National Sports Governing Body (NGB governance)
  • Brand development and marketing
  • PR, Media, Comms and reputation
  • Other diving training agencies
  • Sources of funding
  • Implementing EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) strategies
  • International business development and partnering
  • Commercial diving/retail

A full list of the desired skills and experiences can be found in the BSAC Council election pack, which can be downloaded. Successful candidates in the 2023 BSAC election will take up their Council positions at the club’s AGM next May.

For more information on the role of Vice Chair or Honorary Secretary and an informal chat, please contact  BSAC's CEO Mary Tetley or BSAC’s Chair, Edward Haynes

BSAC Chair, Edward Haynes said it is an exciting time to join BSAC Council and be part of the team to lead BSAC successfully forward.

There are many opportunities as well as challenges ahead for the club, and so we are looking for candidates with the right mix of leadership, skills and experience to join the team. Being a Council member is hugely rewarding and is also the chance for members with particular skillsets to join us around the board table and help make a difference.
