About

The strategy board meets three times each year to approve Progress’ political strategy. It is made up of 12 elected members in four sections. In the first, members of Progress elect four representatives; in the second, parliamentarians (defined as members of the House of Commons, House of Lords, European parliament, Scottish assembly or Welsh assembly) who are members of Progress elect four representatives; in the third, councillors who are members of Progress elect four representatives; and in the newly-created fourth section, young members (defined as Progress members 23 and under) elect two representatives. In addition, there are up to three coopted members plus the honorary president, chair and vice-chairs.

Members of the strategy board will be elected for a two-year term and in each section. At least half of the elected positions must be filled by women.

The process is being conducted by independent scrutineers on behalf of Progress. Electoral Reform Services is accredited to run elections of this kind.
