Stand or nominate a member for Council

As IOSH embarks on its third year of its five-year strategy, could you play a key role in its future? How about taking the opportunity to help shape your profession as a whole and to enhance your own professional experience?

Nominations for members to stand for Council in 2019 are now open. To be nominated, each candidate needs to be proposed by two other members, or a network. In the election, Corporate Members can vote for Non-Corporate Members and vice versa.

Who can stand for election

Membership of Council is open to all members of IOSH. At least 27 of the 36 members of Council need to be Corporate Members of IOSH at the level of Chartered Fellow, Retired Fellow, Chartered Member, or Retired Member.

The remainder can be Non-Corporate Members from the positions of Student Member, Affiliate Member, Associate Member, Technical Member or Graduate Member.

What being on Council involves

Twelve members will be elected. They will join after the Institution’s Annual General Meeting in September, at the IOSH Networks Conference. Successful candidates will serve for three years.

Members of Council will be expected to attend two days of meetings in February and two days of meetings in September. At other times they will asked to contribute to and support discussions on the Council forum and other IOSH business and activities.
