Can you help lead the BAC by joining the Executive?

There are 3 places on the BAC Executive up for election at the 16th October AGM in Liverpool. The Executive is bound by the aims and objectives of the BAC and is responsible for setting the strategic direction. 

Who are the Executive, ordinary and co-opted members?

The Chair of the BAC is Dr Paul Cross, and Allan Wilson is President. The Treasurer and Honorary Secretary duties are carried out by Kay Ellis and Sue Mehew respectively.

Who can stand as Executive members?

The individual will need to be a BAC member and be nominated by another member of the BAC. You will require diplomacy and the ability to fully understand BAC policy and discuss confidential issues with a broad outlook of the profession. 

Time commitments

As an Executive committee member you will need to attend a minimum of 4 committee meetings per annum and you will be expected to join one of the sub-committees or working groups in areas such as education, conference planning and research & development. There is no payment for work undertaken as a member of the Executive although all reasonable expenses are reimbursed.

A postal vote will be required if there are more than 3 nominations. All nominations will require approval at the AGM to be held at our Annual Scientific Meeting on October 16th in Liverpool.

The nomination form is below and should be received by the BAC no later than Thursday 30th June 2015.
