IChemE calls for Board of Trustee and Congress nominations

Article by Amanda Doyle

NOMINATIONS are now open for positions on IChemE’s Board of Trustees and Congress.

Nominations are open for Deputy President and Honorary Treasurer on the Board of Trustees, and there are 20 positions available on Congress in both the Functional and Regional Colleges. The Functional College reflects the membership grades, and the Regional College represents members geographically. Members who are eligible to nominate, stand, and/or vote will receive an email from IChemE. Nominations should be submitted before 09:30 GMT on 25 February.

IChemE President Stephen Richardson said: “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.”

Nigel Hirst, Chair of IChemE’s Congress, said: “Congress is the mechanism for our members’ interests to be better represented, recognised 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.

“By being a member of Congress, you really can make a difference. We encourage every member, from all grades and all parts of the world, to engage and get involved in the nomination and election process.”
