The President-Elect’s role is to support the President of the BPS while preparing to assume the position of President once the sitting President’s term comes to an end.

The President-Elect is also a member of the Board of Trustees. 

Trustees provide independent insight and challenge to the society’s management and staff, with the intention of ensuring that the society is well-led, well-run, and delivers maximum value for members and impact in line with the society’s Royal Charter.

Please refer to the following documents before starting the nominations process:

Please note

Under the society’s proposed new Charter and Statutes, the successful candidate will serve two years as President-Elect, followed by two years as President.

At the time of writing, the proposed new Charter and Statutes have not yet been approved by the Privy Council. 

It is therefore proposed that the President-Elect will be appointed initially for one year (until the Annual General Meeting in 2023), in accordance with the current Charter and Statutes, and that the President-Elect’s term of office will be extended to two years (until the Annual General Meeting in 2024) as and when the Privy Council approve the proposed new Charter and Statutes. 

Subject to Privy Council approval of the proposed new Charter and Statutes, at the end of their term of office as President-Elect, the President-Elect will take up office as President and serve as President until the second Annual General Meeting after taking up office as President.
