The BSG is run by a volunteer Executive Committee elected from its membership. Most posts are for a three-year period and each year new Committee Members, Officers and co-opted positions, are required. These roles are all critical to the future success of the BSG and we urge BSG members to give them due consideration.

The Society benefits from a healthy financial position and is currently investing in a wide range of initiatives intended to promote the discipline and profession of geomorphology, including dispersal of significant research grant funding, development of outreach activities, improvements to our website, membership management and publications portfolio. There is also scope to shape the society through development of our new five-year strategic plan. All this activity relies on the energy and commitment of BSG Committee Members.

Elected positions

This year, we have four positions available - posts are for 3 years unless stated, and will start on the 6th of September 2017:

1. Junior Deputy Chair of the Society (2017-2018): This post will lead onto the post of Deputy Chair (2018-2019) and Chair (2019-2020). To succeed Prof. Simon Mudd (University of Edinburgh)

2. Honorary Secretary: To succeed Dr Rebecca Hodge (University of Durham)

3. Secretary Research Sub-Committee: To succeed Dr Mark Smith (University of Leeds)

Please feel free to contact her or the current post holder beforehand if you'd like any more details about these roles. Further details about the structure of the Society can be found at http://www.geomorphology.org.uk/committees. Contested roles will be subject to online voting, (where required) prior to the confirmation of the successful applicants at the BSG AGM at the Annual Conference at Hull in September 2017.
