Information about PACC Management Board Elections


Elections to the PACC Board 2017

The PACC AGM takes place each November as part of our Autumn Conference.  The AGM includes the presentation of the PACC Annual Report including the accounts, discussions about our plans for the future and the election of Board members.

This year we will also be saying goodbye to our Chair, Anne Lanham, as she steps down to focus on other activities.  Anne was a founder member of PACC and has made a significant contribution to developing parent carer participation in Shropshire since 2008.  We would like to say a huge thank you to Anne for all her support and work over the years and wish her all the best in the future.

Currently we have received the following nominations for election to the PACC Board;

New nominations

Angela Price - Angela has been a PACC member for a number of years and a parent rep for the last 12 months.  She has an 18 year old son, who has Autism and moderate learning disabilities and attends Derwen College as a day student.

Jeannette Griffiths – Jeannette has 4 children including 2 boys diagnosed with asd both with ehcps, one in a specialist independent school and one in mainstream.  She completed the PACC befriending course some years ago and then set up an oasis support group in Bayston Hill encouraging local SEN parent/carers to support each other.

Jeannette was previously a PACC committee member for some years and now wishes to re-join and hopes her experiences will prove helpful.

We would welcome further nominations.  If you are interested in becoming a PACC Board Member and working with us to ensure that the design and delivery of Shropshire service are informed by the  experiences and knowledge of parent carers, please do get in touch on    

As an organisation we work flexibly, taking account of Board Members commitments as carers. Currently the Board meets 10 times a year (excluding August and April), during the daytime at the Central Baptist Church in Shrewsbury town centre.  Training will be offered to new Board members and there will be a chance to initially shadow more experienced Board members when first attending   meetings. Travel and child care expenses are available.

Being a PACC Board member is a great opportunity to develop your understanding of how local and national SEND systems work, to develop your confidence and to learn new skills.  It is also incredibly rewarding to use your experience as a parent carer to help others.
