Have you ever thought about becoming more involved with the RAS? The Society is run by a governing Council, which makes major strategic decisions on our future plans, as well as being the legally accountable body for our work. This year we're seeking nominations for the positions of President-Elect (serving from May 2017, then President from 2018-20), two Vice-Presidents, a geophysics secretary, and four 'ordinary' members of Council. These positions are open to all Fellows, and if they are contested, as they usually are, elections will take place in the spring of 2017. Vice-Presidents serve for two years, the Geophysics Secretary serves for five years, and other members of Council have a three year term, all starting in May 2017.


Nominations close this Friday, 25 November. All Fellows should have received a nomination form and an associated letter setting out the duties of each role.
