IMPORTANT NOTICE - Board Vacancies 2021 - 25/06/2021

The FSEM Board will be advertising for TWO vacancies this year on the board.

Nomination packs will be sent out to all Fellows, Members, and Associate Members in good standing with the Faculty on Monday 5th July 2021 by post, and will give everyone 21 days’ notice for the nominations, as per Standing Orders. FSEM Fellows who are interested in nominating themselves to the Board should return the nomination form duly completed to the office by post or e-mail before Sunday 25th July 2021. Please note that all nominees should have the support of 2 FSEM Fellows or Members in good standing with the Faculty.

FSEM Board elections generally take place every year; the number of board vacancies is approved at board level in the spring each year, based on the number of board members finishing their term of office later that same year.

The Honorary Secretary writes to FSEM Fellows and Members in June/July, and eligible Fellows who are in good standing with the Faculty at that time may put themselves forward for a place on the board.  If we receive more nominations than there are of board vacancies, then voting papers are sent to all Fellows and Members in good standing after the summer, and elections take place end of November. If we receive less nominations than there are of board vacancies, then the nominees are appointed to the board following the AGM at the end of the year.

Following the AGM, the new board members are officially appointed for a term of office of 5 years, and they attend their first board meeting in February.

Additional information about this process is available in our standing orders; if you have any specific queries in relation to board vacancies, and the election process, please contact Stephanie in the FSEM office in the first instance.
