PraxisUnico Board Members are appointed for a four year term by the Board and ratified by the Members at the next Annual General Meeting.  Any vacancies on the Board are notified to members throughout the year on the PraxisUnico website and in the formal notice of the AGM, (which circulates 28 days ahead of the AGM).  There are no current vacancies.

It is usual for the Board to comprise a mixture of senior research commercialisation directors and representatives from key stakeholder organisations who have served on PraxisUnico volunteer sub-committees or who have regularly volunteered as conference or training speakers. Portfolio leads are invited to become Directors of the Board.  Board terms may be extended by re-appointment to ensure appropriate cover for a specific portfolio.
