Committee

The Society is run by a Committee of unpaid volunteers elected by the Members. The Officers of the Society, who are all members of the Committee, are directly elected by the Members. The BSCB Committee is comprised of eight office-holders (President, Secretary, Treasurer, Meetings Secretary, Membership Secretary, Newsletter Editor and Web Co-ordinator) and up to 12 other ordinary members, including one PhD student representative and one Postdoc representative.

The committee is always interested in hearing from cell biologists who wish to contribute to the Society’s activities. Members of the Society are encouraged to nominate candidates for the Committee or Officers positions at any time. Formal nominations should be seconded by another member of the Society. The Committee is also happy to receive un-seconded informal nominations. Nominations should be sent to the Secretary.

The Committee generally meets twice a year, at the Spring Meeting and in the Autumn in London. Additional meetings are arranged from time to time. Items for consideration by the Committee should be submitted to the Secretary .

The BSCB has charitable status (registered charity no. 265816) and has a constitution, which can be read here.  The BSCB AGM is held every year at the Spring Meeting and all BSCB members are invited to attend.
