IOSH Vice-President roles “a great opportunity” for members
7th July 2017
With the deadline approaching for nominations for two VP vacancies, Craig Foyle is encouraging members to come forward.
Two successful candidates will be appointed to the roles at the AGM in November and will have the chance to represent IOSH at events around the world over their three-year term.
They will join the Presidential team, which includes four existing VPs, the President, Immediate Past President and President Elect.
Craig, who is set to become President at the AGM, said he intends to share responsibility for raising IOSH's profile across the globe among this team.
He said: "I personally will relish working with all of the Presidential team. This is an incredibly exciting time for IOSH and the health and safety profession we represent.
"We are now embarking on the delivery of WORK 2022, our new five-year strategy, our No Time to Lose occupational cancer campaign is gathering pace and we have many exciting new training courses on the way.
"Being a Vice-President will allow the two selected members to play a major part in this, promoting and raising the profile of our professional body."
"If you would like the chance to do this now is the time to act. This is a great opportunity for your personal and professional development. I look forward to welcoming two new members onto our Presidential team at the end of this year."
To be considered, applicants must be either a Chartered Member of IOSH council, a Chartered Member of a Network, Standing or Nominations Committee, or a Chartered Fellow and have their CPD, if being undertaken, up-to-date.
Applications must be submitted by noon on Monday 17 July.
Existing VPs are also encouraging fellow members to apply.
Andrew Sharman said: "As an ambassador for IOSH, I can promote health and safety around the world."
Bridget Gilmour said: "It is a real honour to represent IOSH in this way."
And Vincent Ho said: "Stepping outside of my comfort zone was a difficult move. If I could do it, why can't you?"
