We are excited to be working with the British Science Association (BSA) to increase representation of young people on the general committee.
We are looking for young people who are under 30 years old to join BSA General Committee. You do not need to have a formal science background but simply have an interest in science. This can be in the form of a hobby or general interest.BSA wants to broaden the range of knowledge, skills and backgrounds it has. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the board of a charity and to develop personal and professional skills along the way.
“The General Committee is BSA’s main strategic advisory body. They meet twice a year, once in February/March and once at the British Science Festival in September, to provide advice and input on our strategy, programmes and activities. Although they have no formal governance role, their insights and opinions are hugely valuable for the wider viewpoint, broad skills and knowledge base, and strategic input they provide”.
Committee members serve for three years but are eligible for a second term, extending maximum term allowable to six years.
“There are currently four vacancies on the Committee: if more than four nominations are received, the candidates will be selected by a ballot of BSA’s members (members include anyone who volunteers for the BSA or sits on a BSA committee)”.
“Please note that for candidates to be eligible for nomination they must live and work in the UK. In this position you will be a representative of the British Science Association and as such we reserve the right to conduct background checks including but not necessarily limited to criminal records, financial checks and character references”.
Closing date is Tuesday 3rd April 2018.
