Membership of Council enables you to influence the role of the Society in acting as a respected voice, serving science, the profession of geoscience and society. Would you consider standing for election to Council and contributing to the work of the Society, as a member both of Council and one or more of its committees?

You will be able to play an active role in the delivery of the Society's new strategy, and help to facilitate the communication of new scientific findings, engagement with policy makers, the media and the public, and the certification of good practice in education and the profession. This year the Society particularly welcomes nominations from Fellows with knowledge and experience of scientific publishing, and of fund-raising.
Fellows received the nomination form with October’s Geoscientist.  Details of the process are on the form which is also available to download below.  There is also some advice to candidates which gives more information about serving on Council and guidance on the information that should be contained in the supporting statement.

Nominations must be received no later than noon on Friday, 5 January 2018 and they will NOT be valid unless they are fully completed, signed and accompanied by a statement by the nominee.
