The President and Treasurer of the RHS are elected annually by the members of the Society at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The other elected Members of Council usually serve for five years with at least three retiring each year. New members are elected at the AGM with candidates having been nominated in accordance with the nomination process.
Candidates seeking the support of Council in the 2018 elections should submit an informal expression of interest, including a curriculum vitae and/or a supporting statement of not more than 500 words, to the Secretary by 10 November 2017. All such expressions of interest will be considered by the Nominations, Appointments and Governance Committee.
Candidates wishing to proceed directly to the election should complete and deliver a nomination paper, supported by the signatures of eight other members of the Society, to the Secretary by 1 March 2018.
The RHS is committed to providing equal opportunities and will welcome nominations from any eligible member of the Society.
For more information about RHS elections, please refer to the Charter and bye-laws and associated regulations. For further queries, email the Secretary or telephone 020 7821 3679.
