Election of Vice-Presidents 2018

Do you want to be an IOSH Vice-President?

This year, we’re looking for two members to join the existing team of Vice-Presidents (VP) to represent IOSH from the AGM in September 2018 to the AGM in 2021. As a member of the Presidential Team your role will be ambassadorial, representing IOSH globally. This may typically include attendance at events, meetings, Council or virtually through videoconferencing, webinars or via email.

Becoming a Vice-President means you can ‘give something back’ to your professional body. And if you’re considering standing as President, it will give you a chance to get first-hand experience of what the role involves. You need to be either a Chartered Member of IOSH Council; a Chartered Member of a Network (Branch or Group) Committee; a Chartered Member of a Standing or Nominations Committee, Sub-Committee or Working Party; or a Chartered Fellow and have up-to-date Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Applicants will be asked to make a presentation at the next Council meeting on the 4 September 2018. Although, if there are a high number of applicants, Council will be asked to shortlist prior to the meeting.

If you would like an informal chat about the role, get in touch with Sunita Patel, Presidential Team Co-ordinator, on +44 (0)116 257 3389. Alternatively, please download
