Notes on the 2019 Council elections

There were seven positions on Council up for election this year, plus the position of Vice-President of the Society. During the election period, one existing member of Council (2019-20 term) announced their intention to resign at the end of 2019. One of our co-opted members also announced their intention to stand down from Council at the end of 2019.

We received nine applications to become Council members and one application to become Vice-President. All of the applications were reviewed on 11th November 2019 by a nominations group made up of Council officers and all applications were deemed to meet the requirements of the roles.

By the end of 2019, ten members of Council will be concluding their existing terms which is equivalent to the ten applications received for the new 2020-21 term. The nominations group therefore decided to accept all ten applications to join Council from 1st January 2020 with no net change in the overall number of Council members.
