Board members serve for a 3 year term, and are eligible for re-election for a further 3 years. Currently there are 3 vacancies to be filled.

Nominations must be accompanied by a written statement from the nominee that he or she is willing to serve, together with a short statement and curriculum vitae (maximum of 1 A4 side in point 10 or above). Please use the attached pro-forma.  Nominations should be supported by two current members.

Candidates for election to membership of the Board must be members of the Society. The closing date for nominations is Friday 18th March 2016.

The BSGCT Executive Officers (President, General Secretary and Treasurer) are elected from the members of the Board, hence anyone wishing to serve as an Officer should first stand for election to the Board.

Based on various factors which shall include the geographical and scientific balance within the Board, the BSGCT Executive reserves the right to select a short list of candidates to go forward for election.
