East Midlands Councils seek nominations and expressions of interest once a year in May (after the elections) for the following:
These 45 places are appointed by “one place per authority” which is usually the Leader of the Council unless otherwise specified.
In addition to this there are another 46 added places which are worked out on political balance of the region (not authority) and members will be invited to express an interest for this. There are 2 EMC meetings a year (July and February).
Nominations are also invited to the following Boards. These places are worked out on political balance of the region. Members must complete an “Expressions of Interest” form in order for their name to be put forward.
