Elections to Council 2017

Steph Jones says: check your email and your post this month for news of the 2017 Council elections.

The October issue of Geoscientist  invited Fellows to nominate new members of Council and the President-designate. A preliminary ballot will be conducted, the results of which will determine the list for the formal vote at the Annual General Meeting to be held on 7 June 2017.

Electoral Reform Services (ERS) has been commissioned to administer this year’s Council elections. ERS is the UK’s leading independent ballot services provider, and has extensive experience of overseeing ballots for a wide range of organisations. 

Those Fellows for whom we have an email address will receive an email from ERS on or soon after 13 February with instructions how to vote online. If you have not heard by 24 February please check your spam filter before contacting the Society.  Fellows for whom we do not have an email address will be sent a postal ballot pack.

  • The closing date for voting, online or postal, is 31 March 2017.
