Panel Nomination Meeting

The Panel Secretary hereby notifies Trading Parties of the following Panel Nomination Meetings:



3.30pm, 9 February 2021

Retailer vacancies from 9 Feb – 31 Mar 2021


During 2021 the Panel will be reviewing its composition as part of its ongoing governance review. To avoid the need for re-elections, the Panel requested Ofwat to extend the current term of office of elected Panel Members (including the 2 Associated Retailers that will be appointed on 9 February 2021) to 30 September 2021. On 2 February 2021, Ofwat approved the request for extension and therefore the Panel nomination meeting due to be held on Monday 1 March 2021 will be cancelled.

Following the approval of  CPM034: Retailer Panel Member Changes, if there are insufficient nominations to fill Associated or Unassociated Retailer Panel Member roles at a Panel Nomination Meeting, then nominations from the other class of Retailer will be also considered. Therefore, whilst the 9 February 2021 meeting is to appoint 2 Associated Retailers, both classes of Retailer are invited to nominate candidates and notify their voting representatives. 

How to nominate a candidate

Each licensee in the affected constituencies is entitled to nominate one candidate. Nominations must be received by following deadlines:
