Next elections round

If you missed out on joining a committee this time, there's always next year’s election, which takes place in autumn 2022. More information will be released early next year, but in the meantime, register your interest to receive information about vacancies, how to seek nomination or have a chat with someone about committee work.

We know joining a committee isn’t for everyone, so if you're interested in finding out how you can get involved with other membership activities including mentoring, taster days, guideline development, submitting conference abstracts, and participating in audits, get in touch.
