Vacancies on the Council

This page gives details of any current vacancies on the BSECS Council. Vacancies are normally advertised in the autumn of the year and appointments are made or elections held in time for the Society’s AGM, which happens during the Annual Conference in January. Occasionally, vacancies may arise during the year if people step down from the Council.

Those seeking nomination to the BSECS Council should be members in good standing. The roles are voluntary, but we do pay travel and other relevant expenses.

The normal procedure is for people to nominate themselves for a position on the Council. You may nominate someone else but it is probably a good idea to ask them first! The Society will then appoint one of the nominated persons (for appointed roles) or hold an election (for elected roles). For more information about our elections and appointments procedure, please read our constitution.

For queries about vacancies, nominations, appointments, and elections, please contact the BSECS secretary:
