Nominations for additional physiologist and additional nurse representative on Council
At its most recent Council meeting BHRS felt it was timely to increase the numbers of both nurse and physiologist members on Council. This decision reflects the increasing importance of these professional groups in the Society’s business and the considerable work already being delivered by the current nurse and physiologist Council members.
If you feel you would like to contribute to the running of your Society, please apply to become a member of Council. This is your opportunity to help shape how BHRS develops whilst gaining excellent experience of becoming involved with influencing national policy and gaining a better understanding of national arrhythmia services.
BHRS is recruiting for one new Physiologist and one new Nurse representative on Council. All posts have a tenure of three years and are renewable for a second term after successful re-election. The Constitution does allow for past Council members to apply for these posts.
Successfully elected candidates will officially join BHRS Council at the AGM: 18:00 – 19:00, Tuesday 9th October 2018(HRC, Birmingham ICC, Broad Street, Birmingham, B1 2EA). The first Council meeting will be at 07:30 – 08:30 Wednesday 10th October 2018, venue within Birmingham ICC TBC
We welcome interest from anyone who is a current BHRS Ordinary Member and would like to join Council. Please note that you will need to be proposed and seconded by current members of BHRS.
Council work is fulfilling but you should expect to work additional hours to promote the efforts of BHRS!
Council meets five to six times per year, one of which will be at at HRC in Birmingham where the AGM is also held . The remaining meetings are usually held at the BCS offices in London.
All council members are expected to attend a minimum of two meetings per year.
In addition to the responsibilities of the position, members of Council automatically become Trustees of BHRS, a Registered Charity and must accept the responsibilities associated with that position. It is advised that all nominees acquaint themselves with these responsibilities; a summary entitled ‘The Essential Trustee: What you need to know (Updated 10th July 2015)’, this can be downloaded from the Charity Commission website at the following link:

This is needed to register with the Charity Commission.
In the meantime, I would be grateful if you can please return the attached papers by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 17:00, August 20th 2018.
