    [post_content] => Nominations are now open for elections to the Society of Homeopaths’ board of directors.

Two places are available this year as Maggie Dixon and Hilary Fairclough will be standing down.

The successful candidates will have an understanding of governance, an awareness of professional standards and be able to contribute to the Society's long-term development, including growing the membership.

They will be required to spend approximately one day per month on Society business – with the full support of staff – for which they will receive a small honorarium and expenses.

The board is made up of six practitioners, voted on by registered members, and three lay member representatives who are appointed. Directors are elected for a three-year term of office but may stand again after their first term.

Candidates must be nominated by two members of the Society and provide a 300-word election statement, photograph of themselves and CV.

This year, candidates are invited to post a short video on the website making their case for election and the Society has put together some guidelines to help. More details are in the members' area of the website under Society Matters.

Chief Executive Mark Taylor said the Society was hoping that plenty of people would seize the opportunity to stand this year.

“The board is the Society’s decision-making body and its directors represent both the membership and, in the shape of the three lay appointees, the wider community.  This year, in the spirit of openness, we are encouraging people to produce a short video to make their case for election, giving voters an opportunity to hear directly from those nominated before making up their minds.”

Nominations close on 23 February at 5pm. The election will be a postal vote with the results announced ahead of the AGM which takes place over the weekend of April 28-29 at the School of Pharmacy in London.
