Open call for new Council members 2021

11 March 2021

Would you like to help lead the Academy’s mission to promote social science in the UK for the public benefit?

Three vacancies are coming up for election on the Academy’s Council this year. One of the vacancies fall from within the constituency of individual Fellows and two from within the constituency of Learned Societies.

The Council is the Academy’s governing body and its members are both trustees and directors, as the Academy is both a registered charity and a limited company. Council members serve a three-year term, which may be renewed for a further term of three years. Members’ responsibilities are set out here and the current members are listed here.
If you would like to put yourself forward for election, please decide which constituency you are eligible to stand in – either Fellows or Learned Societies – and complete the form for that constituency.

Please send completed forms to Dr Rita Gardner CBE FAcSS, Chief Executive of the Academy, at [email protected] by Thursday 06 May 2021. The elections will run from 20 May to 03 June 2021 and the results will be announced at the Academy’s AGM on 17 June 2021.
