IChemE announces results of Congress elections

Article by Amanda Doyle

IChemE has announced the names of 32 volunteers who have been elected to the new member advisory body.

More than 2,300 members of all grades voted for their functional and regional representatives. Four candidates were elected to Fellow seats, four to Chartered seats, four to Early Career seats, two to Student seats, and two to Rest of the World seats. An additional 16 candidates ran uncontested for the rest of the regional seats. Seven regional seats had no nominees and will remain vacant until the next Congress elections.

The new Congress will be asked to attend an induction session and elect a Congress chair before the Congress becomes fully operational.

IChemE president, Ken Rivers, said:

“At the AGM in May my vision was simple; I wanted our Institution to be led by members, supporting members and serving society. Today we move one step closer to that vision with the establishment of a member advisory body. The membership has spoken, and the newly-elected Congress candidates will be responsible for raising important matters on behalf of their functional or regional constituency, and all members, as an active voice of IChemE’s membership.”

“I would like to thank everyone who has participated in this process, from nominating to voting. Congratulations to all the members who secured a Congress seat, and to those of you who were not successful on this occasion I hope you will continue to use your voice to engage with other members and your Congress representatives. The hard work and passion that I saw from all candidates has been so important to re-invigorating member interest in the way your Institution is run.”

The successful candidates are listed below. A full list of successful and unsuccessful candidates, as well as number of votes cast, is available here.
