IFAs Gary Jefferies and Maureen McKenna are standing for election to the board of the Society of Financial Advisers.
Details of the annual general meeting sent out to members last week show that the two IFAs have put themselves forward for election at Sofa's AGM on November 27.
A gap on the Sofa board has been created by the resignation of Stephen Ingledew, who has taken up a position on the PIA's training advisory group.
There is also a long-standing vacancy that has not yet been filled.
PIA head of compliance Richard Cockroft is also resigning from the Sofa board but is not being replaced.
Sofa is tight-lipped about the election and says it cannot give details of the prospective candidates.
Development director Clare Parkes says: "It is possible that other members will put themselves forward."
Sofa has a board of 11 member directors. Chairman Brian Steeples and fellow board members Ben Carroll and Roderic Rennison are also standing for re-election.
