Nominations have now closed. To see all board candidates, click here. Voting is now open until 13th September @ 5pm.

Ukie Board elections happen every year in the run up to our AGM in September.

All fully paid up Ukie Full and fee-paying Partner members will be asked to elect a number of non-executive board directors according to the Ukie constitution. 

Please see the rules below on who can run and who can vote, but we like to encourage as many people to throw their hat in the ring as possible to make it as diverse as we can.

It is a chance to steer the strategic direction of Ukie, to do the best job possible for the games sector, and to meet and get to know some great fellow Board members.

It is a fantastic way to develop your skills and it is fun. The Board meets every six weeks and people are free to Skype in if they cannot make it.

We would like to thank, on behalf of the whole membership, the current Board and express our sincere gratitude for their support and service.

The Ukie board of directors currently numbers 25 people and is made up of a mixture of Appointed and Elected board members. All board members become Directors of the company.

Appointed board membership status is offered to all companies whose annual membership fee is £50,000 or above and is applied to the company and not an individual.

Elected board members serve for a two-year period although they may choose to re-stand for election at the end of their term. At all times a mimimum of 51% of the board is elected
