DATE: Wednesday 10 July 2019
TIME: 11:00 am
PLACE: Mallory Group, London (map)

Being an ESA Board Director means that you can contribute towards building the sponsorship industry, effect change and have your say in helping to influence decisions made at a senior level.

"We want to reach out to sponsorship practitioners across the industry to ensure that the Board has the broadest reach of knowledge, enabling it to drive the strategy which will continue to raise standards." Andy Westlake, Chairman 

For 2019, there are five positions available and ESA is looking for nominees (especially from Europe) wishing to add their experience to the areas in order of priority:

Media Sponsorship,
Brand Acquisition,
Sports Rights Holders,
The Arts,

The ESA Board should reflect the makeup of the membership – sponsors, rights holders, agencies, consultants, suppliers and professional advisors. The 15 person Board currently includes members who are based in Belgium, Ireland, UK and USA. Board Directors are usually voted in for a term of four to six years.

Please note that nominees must be full members of ESA at the time of their application.
