Governors are represented at NHS Providers through an elected Governor Advisory Committee (GAC) consisting of eight governors and two foundation trust chairs. The committee meets quarterly and meetings are overseen by a chair that has been voted in by the committee. Terms of office are three years.
GAC members provide oversight and feedback on our work and areas that require debate and action. They will have the opportunity to help shape the governor services we provide to our members such as our GovernWell training programme, annual Governor Focus conference, in-house training and guidance resources.
Current members of the Governor advisory committee are:
We hold elections for positions on our GAC every three years. The next elections will take place in late 2020/early 2021.

Our GAC has a demonstrable impact on the work we do. It offers the chance to influence and help shape the services we offer to governors.
Committed to continuous improvement, GAC members identify areas of debate and action and contribute in a number of ways – by inputting into our governor e-newsletter, governor presentations and providing valuable feedback on our resources.
The committee meets four times a year, and offers a chance to network and share insights on good practice across member trusts.
The most recent GAC elections for the new committee took place in January 2018 with voting closing on Monday 30 April 2018. The election was supported by Electoral Reform Services (ERS). Each foundation trust was able to nominate one governor to stand for election to one of eight governor positions.
Votes were cast by the single transferable vote system (STV), designed to achieve proportional representation, through ranking candidates in order of preference. For further details on the voting process, you can view our STV diagram and brochure.
