APS elections 2017

The annual elections for your regional committees will take place at the end of June.    

Nominations period: ends next Tuesday 30th May at midnight

The nominations period opened on Tuesday 2nd May.   This is the period when APS members can put themselves forward for election onto the APS Regional Committees. 

There's still time to get your nominations in.  If you haven't received the form by email, you can download it on the right-hand side of this page.


You can only be nominated for your own regional committee.   

To be nominated you must be an APS retired, associate, IMaPS, CMaPS or fellow member

Your nominees must be 3 APS members who are a retired, associate, IMaPS, CMaPS or Fellow member.  They do not need to be from the region you intend to stand for.

We will send out a nominations form to all members.  If you wish to stand for election you tell us the the names of the three members who are nominating you.  You will also need to provide a supporting statement describing why APS members should vote for you and how you will contribute to the regional committee you wish to be elected on to.

The nominations period closes on Tuesday 30th May, when the names of your nominees and your supporting statement must be returned to us
