BSRG Committee

The BSRG committee has a "rolling" membership, and committee members hold office on a voluntary basis. The Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer each normally serve a 3-year term after they are elected. To maintain a degree of continuity in the committee’s planning and decision making, elections for these three posts are held in successive years. The Awards Officer and Industry Liaison Representative(s) also normally serve on the committee for three years. The AGM Convenor serves on the committee during the year leading up to the AGM that they are organising. The position of Postgraduate Representative(s) usually changes annually. Ordinary committee meetings are held annually at the AGM, but additional meetings are occasionally held at other times.

Departmental Reps
Volunteers are also requested to act as local representatives for BSRG within their own institutions and to their colleagues. Ideally we would like to have one contact person within each institution. This provides an additional channel for publicising BSRG activities, for example for distributing posters for BSRG meetings and gathering ideas and suggestions.

How to apply
Nominations for positions on the committee are solicited prior to the December AGM, where a vote is held in the Business Meeting if required. Please consider volunteering for one of these positions; the tasks are relatively light and it is a fulfilling way of contributing to the vitality of the UK sedimentological community.
To stand for election to the committee, please send a letter with your name, address and e-mail, countersigned by a proposer and seconder, to the Chairperson. Positions available: Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, Awards Officer, Industry Liaison, Postgraduate Representative, Website Administrator, AGM Convenor.
