Joining the Challenger Society Council

vacancies
The Challenger Society Council, comprising approximately fifteen ordinary members of the Society (and a minimum of ten), 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.
