England Athletics National Council

National Council Members

The National Council includes the nine regional council chairs. The chair of the National Council is elected by the members of the National Council. Two members of National Council, one of whom is the National Council Chair sit, on the Board of England Athletics. To find out more about our National Council members see their profiles on the National Council Members page.

The nine England Regional Councils are formed of elected and co-opted volunteers from each region. To find out about who is on your Regional Council either click the link below the Regional Chair’s name above or access via the www.englandathletics.org/your-area link. In Spring 2017 there will be elections for the Regional Councils. Click here to access the Regional Councillor resources page which sets out a broad outline of what the job includes. We welcome Councillors of all ages/experience and this includes active athletes. The election papers will be linked here when they become available.


The National Council wants to be able to communicate with the volunteers delivering the sport. We want to hear your views. The best way to do this is to split the sport up into its separate parts and have specialists in each region and at national level acting on your behalf. We call these parts Portfolios and we are currently increasing our effort in three key areas – Clubs, Coaching and Officials. To understand what we do more fully and to find how to communicate with the regional and national Portfolio holders please follow this link

National Council Meetings 2016

So that you can see what the National Council has been discussing in its meetings and conference calls on a timely basis we publish documents called “Outcomes”. These are not full Minutes of the meetings but an abbreviated record. The Minutes themselves have to be approved at the next Council Meeting – so the Outcomes are based on the meeting record which has been circulated to those who attended for factual accuracy but before final approval.

Please see our Previous Meetings Archive for older meetings - 20132014 and 2015.
