British Rowing is accepting nominations from Affiliated Members for the role of chairman.

Current chairman Annamarie Phelps‘ first four-year term of office comes to an end on 31 March 2017. The British Rowing constitution states that a chairman may serve for two terms of office and Phelps plans to stand for a second term in the February election alongside the other nominees.
