Joining the Challenger Society Council
The Challenger Society Council, comprising approximately fifteen ordinary members of the Society, is the body entrusted with managing financial affairs, setting policy and deciding how the Society can best support and engage with the marine science community.
The council is led by the serving President and council members, after election at a society AGM, generally serve for a period of three or four years taking responsibility for one of the management portfolios administered by the Society. Detail of the current Council membership is listed on the website at http://www.challenger-society.org.uk/The_Council.
The council meets four times a year (usually in London) and presents the progress of the Society to the membership at the Annual General Meeting, held either at the Challenger Conference or a suitable scientific meeting, in September each year.
During the next 12 months there are three vacancies for council membership places which need to be filled, including the post of Honorary Secretary.
For these positions we seek lively and engaging scientists, from academia or industry, enthusiastic about supporting career development for our colleagues and helping to shape and manage the future of one of oldest and foremost Marine Science Societies in the world.
If you are a full member of the Society and interested in joining the council, please email an expression of interest to the Honorary Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a short statement of your career to date and how you think that you might best contribute to the Council. Your application will be considered at the next scheduled council meeting and if successful, a proposal for your election at the AGM put forward.
Please mark the email subject as Challenger Society Council Application.
We really look forward to hearing from you.
