BCIS President: Election update

Previous | Next

Summary

BCIS Presidential Election

Members will be aware that the BCIS Presidential Election, launched on Sunday April 14th, was suspended the following day due to an inconsistency in the process.
The personal statement of one of the 5 candidates, Professor Neal Uren, was not included on the election web page and accompanying e-mail. This was an administrative error, but it has become apparent that although all 5 candidates submitted their self-nominations before the closing date, Professor Uren’s supporting statement was not received until later.
The BCIS Administration Group, consisting of the President, Honorary Secretary, Treasurer, Audit Lead, and Clinical Standards Lead, has agreed that the election should be re-run and all previous votes will be discounted. All 5 candidates, Professor Nick Curzen, Dr Sen Devadathan, Professor David Hildick-Smith, Professor Philip MacCarthy, and Professor Neal Uren will be included and their supporting statements will be available on the website.
The election voting process will be relaunched on Monday April 29th. You will receive an e-mail with details of all candidates, including personal statements, and how to vote. Please note that none of the votes cast on Sunday 14th and Monday 15th April will be counted, so anyone who voted then will need to vote again and they are encouraged to do so.
Once again we sincerely apologise for the disruption this has caused, in particular to all of the candidates. We are grateful for their understanding.

Honorary Secretary
