Help the FSRH achieve its mission – Member/Fellow Nominations for Council Vacancies
Dear FSRH Member/Fellow
It is a challenging and exciting time for the FSRH as we work to improve all that we do to support our vision ‘Better care, a better future’. Our Council, comprised of volunteer FSRH members, plays a key role in shaping and overseeing the work of the Faculty. The role of Council is changing this year (subject to approval by the AGM in July) and most Council members will no longer be trustees of the charity but will focus on informing and steering our education, standards and influencing work. Being a Council member is a rewarding experience that offers an insight into the work of the FSRH and offers the opportunity for members to have an impact on the wider field of SRH.
At the AGM in July this year, two of the six elected Member/Fellow representatives of the Council will come to the end of their terms. Therefore we have 2 vacancies for Member/Fellows to stand for election to Council.
To stand for election
Please complete the form below including signatures from three current Members or Fellows to support your nomination. Please also include a short paragraph (no more than 300 words) to support your application and return a scanned copy via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or send via post to the address below to ‘Jane Hatfield’. This must reach the FSRH offices not later than 9am on Monday 8th May 2017.
Please note, the closing date for nominations has now passed.
When the nomination period has lapsed, if the number of Members/Fellows standing for election does not exceed the number of vacancies a ballot will not be held and the members nominated will be elected. If the number of nominations exceeds the number of vacancies, a list of candidates, together with ballot forms, will be sent to all Members and Fellows with a ballot paper and an election will be held.
