Assembly of Representatives


What is the Assembly of Representatives?  


The Assembly of Representatives (Assembly) is our professionally focused forum, influencing our governing boards and committees, as well as acting as an adviser to our Board of Trustees and an ambassador for our members. 


Who are the representatives? 

The 32 Assembly representatives are elected from our members within the regions, Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and the student community. A proportion of the representatives are elected annually by nomination (either self-nomination or by a peer) and then a representative chosen by secret ballot by their peers. 


What do they do? 

The Assembly supports the regions, branches, SIGs and student community, providing them with opportunities to bring forward topics and professional issues that they consider to be important and current for further consideration. 

In addition to its important debating and influencing role, the Assembly also oversees and approves all the appointments to our Governance Structure (Board of Trustees, Risk and Audit Committee, Professional Standards and Policy Committee and the Qualifications Standards Committee). 



A third of the Assembly of Representatives will stand down at the end of December each year and we will recruit for those positions in the preceding summer.  

Nominations for the following regions/ SIG's open will open August 26 2016: 

  • International SIG 
  • East Midlands Region 
  • West Midlands Region 
  • Scotland Region 
  • Education & Research SIG
