IChemE Invites Nominations For Board And Congress Positions

Feb. 17, 2020
Members of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) are invited to put themselves forward for available positions on the board of trustees and congress.

Members of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) are invited to put themselves forward for available positions on the board of trustees and congress. Nominations for duly qualified persons on the board of trustees are open for deputy president and honorary treasurer. Nominations are available for 20 members of congress.

 All members who meet the eligibility criteria to nominate, stand and/or vote for a congress or trustee role will receive an email from IChemE. The trustee positions must be supported by five voting members and include written consent from the individual concerned that they will act as a trustee if elected.

Voting members have the opportunity to nominate, stand and vote for the available positions in the two electoral colleges on congress. The functional college reflects the membership grades, and the regional college represents members geographically.Individuals applying to stand for any of the available seats in the regional college require the support of two voting members (chartered and fellow members) who can be based in any region. Those applying for available seats in the functional college require the support of two members in the same constituency.

Associate members, affiliate members and technician members with more than nine years of experience are eligible to support a nomination for, and vote for, the early career congress seat, but cannot stand for election. Members should submit their nominations by 9:30 GMT on Tuesday, February 25.

“Volunteers are at the heart of our institution. By volunteering as a trustee, you can play a vital role in setting the strategic direction of the institution and helping us collectively to achieve our mission to be led by members, supporting members and serving society. We strongly encourage anyone with the experience and expertise to come forward and nominate themselves for the roles,” says IChemE President Stephen Richardson.

Nigel Hirst, chair of IChemE’s congress, says, “Congress is the mechanism for our members’ interests to be better represented, recognized and promoted in the decision-making process of IChemE. Since congress’ journey began in 2018, we have provided valuable input on key areas of development for IChemE on behalf of our members; including on Strategy 2024, member engagement and communications, and strengthening the communication between congress and the board of trustees.”
