The General Committee

The General Committee is established by British Science Association statutes and is the principal strategic advisory body of the British Science Association. The Committee meets twice a year, once in March and once at the British Science Festival in September, to provide advice and input on the BSA’s strategy, programmes and activities. The Committee has no formal governance role in the BSA but is valuable for its wider viewpoint, broad skills and knowledge base, and strategic input.

The number of members forming the General Committee can be varied by the British Science Association’s Council. The current elected members of the General Committee are shown below together with the date of his/her retirement. In principle, those elected serve for three years and can then stand for re-election since there is a maximum period of six years. Nominations are currently required for elected places on the British Science Association General Committee:
