IBMS Council elections


Council Elections 2024: Your chance to shape the future of the IBMS

The IBMS prides itself on being a professional body that is run by its members for its members. The IBMS Council is elected by its members to make key decisions, provide leadership for the profession and effective and transparent governance, as well as be a compelling advocate on their behalf.

The IBMS is looking for corporate members, resident in the UK (which we take to include the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man), to stand for election to Council; members who will use their professional knowledge, leadership skills and experience to set the strategic direction of the IBMS, shaping the professional body’s future and ensuring it continues to meet its members’ needs.

Becoming an IBMS Council member offers an excellent opportunity to make a significant contribution to the future direction of the Institute and the profession and to use your experience to develop the Institute, while broadening your skills and networks.

Council members have responsibilities as trustees and company directors of the IBMS. A trustee is defined as a person who sits on the governing body and has the right to vote on that body. Council members, as trustees of the IBMS, have a duty to have, and must accept, ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of the IBMS and ensuring that it is solvent, well-run, and delivering the charitable outcomes for the benefit of the public for which it has been set up.

Two National and five Regional (East Anglia, East Midlands, London, North East, North West) Council members are to be elected in 2024.
