The ABS is seeking expressions of interest from members who are interested in sitting on the Education and Training Committee and the Academic and Research Committee. The available positions are:
Education and Training Committee
There is one vacancy for a member of this committee. The committee also has nursing, SAS grade and trainee representatives so it is anticipated that the appointment will be a full member, who is working as a consultant surgeon. However other members are free to apply at this time and their applications will be considered.
Academic and Research Committee
This committee has now been in existence for 5 years and so there are vacancies for one Secretary of the Committee and 7 members. In order to ensure continuity on the committee, applications will be considered from existing committee members, but if successful they will only be given a two year extension in their term. At least two new members will be appointed at this time in order to ensure that in future the introduction of new committee members is staggered. The committee has nursing and trainee representation on it so it is anticipated that the appointments will be made from the full membership (both Consultant and SAS grade). However other members are free to apply at this time and their applications will be considered.
ABS Committees meet three times a year in January/ February, April/ May and September. Committee members are expected to work in between time on various committee projects.
Members wishing to apply for these roles should send a letter to Lucy Davies at the ABS Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the 28th February 2019 expressing their interest in the roles and stating the relevant experience they have to fulfil the role. A short (3 page maximum) CV can be included for reference.
Should you wish to discuss any of the posts please contact Lucy Davies on 020 7869 6852 or by e-mail at email@example.com
