I was at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Institute and Faculty earlier this afternoon. The results of the Council election were announced and are shown below (see here for full details):
So I came 5th out of 12, with 626 votes and therefore got elected (there being 6 places). Many thanks to all those who voted for me, and commiserations to those who didn’t get elected this time: it is worth standing again (I stood unsuccessfully in 2009 but have been elected this time).
I look forward to working with others on the Council, in particular with the aim of achieving the goals set out in my manifesto.
PS It is a pity that the turnout was quite low (<20% for the General Constituency, and 30% for the Scottish Constituency) – I hope that members will be pleased by the changes that I would like to introduce over the next year to make the website more interactive, and that this (amongst other things) will prompt members to be happy to participate more in what is their professional body.
