FPH encourages members to get more involved with the organisation by standing for election to join the Board

Nominations are open for three General Board Members at FPH. Whether you’re just starting out in your career or perhaps you’ve got ten years’ experience under your belt but want a new challenge, becoming a Board member is accessible to all of our voting members*.

The posts are all key strategic leadership roles, which offer an exciting opportunity to contribute to, and indeed shape, future public health policy and practice, and the future of FPH. So if you’re passionate about the future of public health and FPH, please consider standing for election.

Equally, if you know someone who’d be an asset to the existing Board, please tell them that you want to nominate them. It might be the nudge they need to put themselves forward!

Primary responsibilities

  • To serve as a trustee of FPH
  • With other trustees, to ensure that FPH is solvent, well run, delivers its charitable Objects, acts within its Standing Orders and complies with charity law
  • To attend and contribute to approximately five Board meetings per year and further ad hoc contributions via telephone and email
  • To represent the views and interests of the general FPH membership
  • To promote FPH policies and initiatives
  • To serve as an ambassador for FPH

Lastly, Sue Atkinson, Chris Packham and Harry Rutter, our current General Board Members, will complete their first term of service at the AGM and they’re all eligible to stand for a second term. However, Harry Rutter has indicated that, due to pressure of other work, he will not be re-standing.
