Election of President, Treasurer & Members of Council

The President and Treasurer of the RHS are elected annually by the members of the Society at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The other elected Members of Council usually serve for five years with at least three retiring each year. Replacements are elected at the AGM.

The RHS is committed to providing equal opportunities and welcomes nominations from any eligible member of the Society.

For more information about RHS elections, please refer to the Charter and bye-laws and associated regulations. For further queries, email the Secretary or telephone 020 7821 3653.

Candidates seeking the support of Council in the election must submit an informal expression of interest to the Secretary in the form of a supporting statement of no more than 500 words. You will need the support of Council in order to be considered for all or any of the proxy votes by which other members give the President discretion to cast their votes.

Nominations for elections at the 2017 AGM close on 1 March 2017. Informal expressions of interest should be sent to the Secretary by 3 October 2016.
