Call for nominations: UKCP vice chair

UKCP is calling an election.

We are seeking nominations for the position of vice chair of UKCP. The vice chair’s prime role is to support and deputise for the chair of UKCP.

Civica Election Services has been appointed by UKCP to manage the nomination and voting process, as they have done for previous UKCP elections.

Role description, relevant forms and instructions on how to submit your nomination can be found on the CES website.

To be eligible to be nominated for vice chair, you must have been a full clinical member of UKCP for at least two years and be in good standing. UKCP defines a registrant to be in good standing if they meet the following criteria:

  • They have paid the relevant membership fees to UKCP.
  • They have not been subject to any form of sanction, suspension or disciplinary censure.

UKCP is committed to equal opportunities and welcomes applications to promote wider diversity on the Board of Trustees.
