All nominations must have a proposer and a seconder (interested members may nominate themselves and ask two other colleagues to second the nomination). Proposers must have obtained the agreement of both the nominee and the seconder. Proposers, seconders and nominees must be members of BRISMES.
Proposers must provide a biography and a short statement (250 words maximum each) explaining their reasons for nominating the candidate. This information may be circulated to members should an election be necessary.
We welcome applicants who are interested in role-sharing, but please note that the role is considered a single post with a single vote on council. Each nominee would need to submit a separate nomination form and indicate on the form that their nomination should be considered together with that of another candidate (please include the name of your co-nominee).
The successful candidate(s) will formally take office at the Society’s Annual General Meeting in early July 2024, but an informal handover period will commence as soon as possible after their election.
Please email email@example.com if you need to check your membership status or if you have any questions about the nomination process.
