2011 Elections to the ASDC Board

ASDC's board plays a strategic role in the nation's engagement with science.

It helps to shape the way the UK's 60 member science and discovery centres, science museums, environmental centres and science engagement organisations work together to inspire the nation.

In June 2011 we invited nominations for new Trustees to the ASDC Board.

The current board of Trustees

The current board is made up of 15 CEOs and senior managers of the UK's science museums and science and discovery centres.
The ASDC Board is currently chaired by Dr Nick Winterbotham. After four years at the helm, Nick will be stepping down from the Board and Ian Griffin from Science Oxford will become the new Chair.

In addition to this one other trustee will be stepping down from the Board and one trustee will be standing for re-election (please see grid below).

Therefore this year we asked for up to 4 new trustees and were delighted to appoint the following three people:
