Call for nominations 2020/21

The strategy of the Biochemical Society is set and driven by its Council of Trustees, which is elected by members and has the ultimate responsibility for all aspects of the Society’s activities.  Responsibility for specific areas of activity and function is then delegated to its sub-Committees.

At the Society’s 2020 AGM, the vacancies listed below were announced. We are calling for nominations from members who are interested in playing an active role in the future of the Biochemical Society, to support the wider molecular biosciences community.

Civica Election Services is administering the nominations for Trustee and Committee roles on behalf of the Biochemical Society. To find out more and to complete the nomination process, please visit their website >
