Members asked to nominate people to join Assembly of Representatives
Nominations are now open to join the Assembly of Representatives (Assembly) and members are being asked to put forward names of people they want to represent their interests and views
The Assembly has 32 members and a third of the people who sit on it stand down every year having reached the end of their three-year term.
Nominations are being accepted from Friday 26 August and this year CIEH is looking for new people to represent the following seats:
- East Midlands Region
- West Midlands Region
- Scotland Region
- Education and Research Special Interest Group (SIG)
- International Special Interest Group (SIG)
All CIEH members are being invited to nominate their colleagues and have till Thursday 22 September to send in their recommendations. You are allowed to nominate yourself and if more submissions are received than seats available, ballots will open the following week on Thursday 29 September.
The Assembly is a professionally focused forum, which influences and engages with the CIEH’s governing boards and committees, acts as an adviser to the Board of Trustees and is an ambassadorial body for CIEH members.
The 32 representatives are sourced from the regions, SIGS and the student community. In addition to its debating and influencing role, the Assembly also oversees and approves all the appointments to CIEH’s Governance Structure, including: the Board of Trustees, Risk and Audit Committee, Professional Standards and Policy Committee and the Qualifications Standards Committee.
Sharon Smith, Regional Stakeholder Manager, said: “Being a member of the Assembly presents a whole host of benefits, from professional development to directly influencing the direction of the CIEH and your profession.
“This is your chance to help shape the future direction of CIEH so make sure you nominate your colleagues who you think not only deserve to sit on this high-profile body but can also make a positive difference for the environmental health profession.”
