You can also keep an eye on the NPA forum for messages from candidates. We have posted a comment today sent in from one of our allied industry nominees.

NPA chief executive Zoe Davies said: "We are giving all nominees the chance to promote their application in this way, as we cant have regional meetings or any sort of hustings this year - so, candidates, please feel free to put comments in the forum."
