BSHAA President Andrew Coulter said: “Joining BSHAA Council will place members in a strong position to influence the direction the profession takes in these fast-changing times. Council members deliver BSHAA events, shape professional standards, influence our membership offer and much more.
“Members don’t need decades of experience to stand for election to Council. In fact, we are particularly encouraging BSHAA members in the early stages of their career to stand for election to Council, as well as members who are able to help drive our work in engaging with students. Council works best when we have a diverse range of voices, practice settings and experience. Also, women and minority ethnic groups are currently under-represented on Council, and we really do want to change this.”
