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 their respective Regional Council pages.

Regional Councils 

The 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.


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.

National Council Meetings 2017

So that you can see when teh council is meeting and what the National Council has been discussing in its meetings and conference calls on a timely basis we publish a schedule of meetings and, following the meetings, 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 - 201320142015 and 2016.
