Council vacancies

Volunteering as a Trustee on the RSB Council is one of the best ways to help influence how the Royal Society of Biology delivers its charitable aims and acts as a unified voice for biology. This year there were two vacancies on Council, open to representatives of Member Organisations. Following a vote by the organisations, two new Council members will be elected at the AGM. Trustee role descriptions are available to download.
