Institute Vice Chairman Nominations 2015

Posted on Friday, July 17, 2015

Dear Member,

In accordance with our Bye Laws, the current Institute Chairman, Mr Richard Brook-Hart FICS, will complete his two year term as Chairman at this year's Controlling Council meeting and the Vice Chairman Mr. Michael Taliotis FICS will assume the office of Institute Chairman.

Therefore the Institute is now seeking nominations for the office of Vice Chairman of the Institute, who under normal circumstances will be expected to assume the role of Institute Chairman at the end of the Chairman's term.

Any branch or individual member may nominate a fellow for the position of Vice Chairman using the attached form.

Nominations must be supported by ten (10) members or fellows signing the nomination form.

All nominees and their supporters must be fully paid up members of the Institute.

This is a very important role and requires someone who is able to lead and grow the Institute in the future.
