It’s BSGE Election time again. President Andrew Kent announced that the vote is now live on the BSGE website and reminded members to make the most of their constitutional rights saying:

‘We are already rushing through 2023 and our long awaited conference in Manchester will soon be upon us. I hope that many of you will be able to join us and as part of this attend the AGM on the Thursday evening on 20th April. You will receive notification of this in due course with some minor changes of our constitution for you to consider prior to the meeting.

We will also be announcing the results of the current round of elections for Council.

‘To that effect the Council elections are now live on the BSGE website and I urge you to take a few minutes and vote for for your preferred candidates.’

This year there are three senior vacancies  (out of five candidates) and one trainee vacancy (with two candidates applying for the position). The two nurse specialist vacancies were uncontested so Gilly Macdonald and Caroline Bell will serve a second term on Council in their current roles.

the election is a first past the post system for all posts. All fully paid members of the Society, based in UK, can vote for any candidate in any of the categories.

The closing date for voting is on Friday, 24th March 2023 at 5pm.
