BUIRA Executive Committee Elections and virtual Annual General Meeting

The BUIRA Executive Committee will have 4 vacancies as from July/August 2020. We will be announcing the results of these elections at a forthcoming virtual Annual General Meeting to be held in August 2020 (exact date to be confirmed).
As discussed and agreed at the AGM in Leeds 2016, the voting system for vacancies on the Executive Committee will be conducted differently. We now invite all members to forward their interest in becoming a member of the BUIRA Exec Committee to the BUIRA Stewards.
Please complete by Friday 7th August your nomination form here:
All members are welcome to apply regardless of career stage (i.e. early career or otherwise). However, we would strongly encourage women and black and minority ethnic members to apply for these positions, as they remain to be under-represented in BUIRA.
Due to the lack of a physical conference this year, we are conducting the voting online through Qualtrics. The selection process is still via the membership, not the Stewardship or the Executive Committee. The results will be announced at the Virtual AGM.
On the application form, you must include a short biography of no more than 300 words and your reasons for applying for the vacant position. Deadline Friday 7th August.
