Other sections, like Policies, Guidelines, Roles and Responsibilities refer to aspects of committee roles. Members may include a Chair, Deputy Chair, Discipline representatives, other representatives (eg, Faculties/NZ/QAP/external orgs), members, co-opted members, fellow less than 6 years, a Trainee. A committee term is 2 years and can be renewed twice via nomination to a maximum of 6 years in a position. (Board of Directors (BOD) appointments are detailed in the RCPA Constitution).
Nomination Process: complete and return the form to go to the Board of Directors. For BOD positions if there is more than one nomination for a position an election is required as per the Constitution. For other committees a decision is made by the Board of Directors. Following the College AGM (in mid-November) all new positions are approved and the College database updated. New terms start 1 December each year and a committee list and general information is sent out to each committee.
