The eighth AGM of Freegle Ltd will be held 28th August to 4th September 2022 inclusive on Freegle Central. As detailed in our Rules under Retirement Cycle, three elected Directors are obliged to stand down. We have had 8 elected Directors over this past term, plus one co-option. We therefore have 4 vacancies, as a co-option only lasts until the next AGM.

The current elected and other Directors can be found at Freegle Board.


Details for the Director Role can be found on the following pages

Any additional questions that arise about the Director Role can be addressed to the Returning Officers or offlist to a current or past Director. Contact Returning Officer or find the names of current Directors at Freegle Board.

The term of office for elected Directors is up to 3 years, but Directors are welcome to stand again immediately when that term finishes.
