Justin thanked members for voting and announced the results as follows:

  • Vice President: Andrew Kent, who will succeed Justin Clark as President in 2022
  • Senior Representatives: Arvind Vashisht, Fevzi Shakir, Angus Thomson and Karolina Afors
  • Trainees Representative: Angharad Jones
  • Endometriosis CNS: Gilly Macdonald
  • Nurse Hysteroscopist: Caroline Bell

Justin congratulated the successful candidates, expressed his appreciation for outgoing Council members and encouraged those not elected to consider reapplying in the future:

‘We send our congratulations to all the successful candidates. There were a large number of extremely able and committed people standing for election, and I hope that those who were not elected will continue to contribute to the work of the Society and consider re-applying for Council. We need all these talented people. Sincere thanks also to Wendy-Rae Mitchell, Chris Guyer and Natasha Waters who have provided fantastic service to our Society, with their wisdom and experience, and who are now stepping down from Council. However, quality never goes away and I am sure that we will find many other ways to use their talents.’
