Following the adoption of the revised Memorandum & Articles of Association at the AGM on 14th October, British Rowing’s Council ceased to exist on 31st October 2017.

With effect from 31st October 2017 Council has been replaced by an elected body of Regional Representatives. These Representatives are elected by the affiliated clubs and events in a Region. The number of Regional Representatives per Region is determined by formula based on the number of registered individual members of British Rowing in a Region.

The Regional Representatives hold all the powers of the members of a company as defined by the Companies Act (e.g. power to call General Meetings and the power to vote on Resolutions). In addition the Regional Representatives also have the power to elect four directors to the Board; the Deputy Chairman, the Chairman of the Sport Committee and two further Directors.

Apart from the powers transferred to the Regional Representatives all other powers previously vested in Council have been transferred to the Board.

In addition to the AGM, the Regional Chairmen, or their appointed representatives, meet at a Regional Chairmen’s Forum three times a year with the Chairman of British Rowing to consult on British Rowing’s policy and organisation and the development of rowing.
