Election of Vice-Presidents 2017

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 November 2017 to the AGM in 2020. Vice-Presidents support the Presidential Team in their work with the media, at events and at lobbying and profile-raising meetings.

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, Standing or Nominations Committee, or a Chartered Fellow and have your CPD, if being undertaken, up-to-date.

Vice-Presidents will automatically join Council.

Applicants will be asked to make a presentation at the next Council meeting on the 13 September 2017. Although, if there are a high number of applicants, Council will be asked to shortlist prior to the meeting.

Please download the VP Job description for further information on the role.
