BABCP Trustee Elections 2021

BABCP is leading the way in furthering the provision of high-quality CBT in the UK and Ireland and has a diverse membership of more than 14,000, working in both the public and private sectors, as well as student members and those simply interested in CBT. Currently, more than 60% of our members are accredited practitioners, and we also accredit 45 Higher Education CBT courses. 

We have recently launched our PWP register, with the intention of expanding this to more roles within the Wellbeing Practitioner workforce, and we have also applied to have our CBT Register UK accredited by the Public Standards Authority (PSA). 

We are now seeking nominations from members to join our Board of Trustees. As a Trustee you are responsible for managing BABCP in accordance with our Memorandum and Articles of Association as well as charity and company legislation. 

Do you have what it takes to help shape the future of BABCP? In addition to your passion for developing the theory and practice of CBT, you will want to contribute to the strategic direction of the Association. Previous experience as a Trustee or similar position would be helpful, but not essential. 

The Trustee positions

Nominations for five Trustee positions on the BABCP Board are now open. We are seeking – 

  • President Elect, who will be in position for four years – one year as President Elect, two years as President, and one year as Past President 
  • Honorary Treasurer, who will be in position for three years 
  • Two Elected Members, who will be in position for three years each 
  • Honorary Secretary, who will be in position for two years. This position is normally a three-year post, but is available this year due to our current Honorary Secretary Dr Carol Brady stepping down. 

These roles are to be confirmed at our 2021 Annual General Meeting, the date for which will be confirmed soon. We welcome applicants for all our positions who possess the relevant attributes, but we would particularly welcome black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME), lesbian, gay, bi, trans (LGBT+) and disabled applicants.


If you want to nominate yourself for any of the Trustee roles, please complete the Nominations Form below and return it by email to by no later than 23 July 2021.

Note that both your proposer and seconder must be current BABCP members. Please also include a statement of no more than 250 words in support of your application. This will be available to all members in the event of a ballot.
