Council

Call for nominations for IChemE Council vacancies

On 9 February 2018 all Voting Members were sent a list of the retiring Honorary Officers and Ordinary Members of Council. As previously communicated, Council has chosen not to nominate any candidates for election this year so all of the following vacancies will be filled through nominations brought forward by the membership.

Nominations are therefore now open for the following positions on IChemE's Council:

  • President for 2019 (Deputy President 2018)
  • Honorary Treasurer
  • Vice President (International)
  • Three Ordinary Members of Council

 

A number of documents are available to guide members through the nomination process:

 

In accordance with By-Law 68, nominations of duly qualified persons must be received by the Chief Executive on or before close of business on Friday 2 March 2018.

If more nominations than vacancies are received, then a ballot of all Voting Members will commence during April and the successful candidates will be invited to take up their places on Council with effect from the end of the AGM, which will be held on 21 May 2018 at the IET, Savoy Place, London.

Request for assistance in managing the process

The President's letter explains the two-stage process being followed. This will allow greater transparency and a smoother transition to new governance arrangements should they be adopted. This includes the creation of an Interim Candidate Committee, whose role will be to assure trustee competence needs are met, in accordance with Charity Commission guidance. Three members of the Committee will be nominated by Council and three members drawn from the wider membership. 

Applications are invited for these latter three places, which must be received by the Chief Executive on or before close of business on Monday 26 February 2018.

These are important steps in the development of our member led Institution, as we seek to improve the support to members, and the service that we provide to society.
