How can I join the CAB?

See above for the positions currently open for nominations. 

You can nominate yourself by emailing the CAB secretary a statement of no more than 250 words. This statement should explain the role you play in your community group or organisation. It should also talk about why you think you would make a good representative. You will be asked to secure an endorsement from a community group or organisation that focuses on the area you would like to represent. The CAB will then vote on all nominated candidates.
