The BUIRA Executive Committee will have 4 vacancies as from July 2022. We will be announcing the results of these elections at a forthcoming online Annual General Meeting.
As 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 your nomination form here: https://bham.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8unplDT687Cc9QG
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. Following the motion passed at the 2019 AGM in Newcastle, to ensure the Executive Committee has an equal gender balance, at least two of the vacant positions must be filled by individuals identifying as female.
Voting shall be conducted 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 Online 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.
Please submit your application by Friday 27th May 2022. Voting will open w/c Monday 30th May and will close Monday 20th June at 12.00 noon.
