Nominations for CTSI Chair, Vice Chair and Second Vice Chair for Council 2022

We (CTSI) are seeking nominations for Chair, Vice Chair and Second Vice Chair of the Council of the Institute for the year commencing from the AGM on 8 December 2021.

Nominations for these posts can be made by an established Branch or Section of CTSI and have to be signed by at least two officers. If an individual member wishes to nominate a person this must be done through their Branch or Section.

It is anticipated that there is a progression from Second Vice Chair to Vice Chair to Chair of the Council. Nominees should therefore be prepared to commit to this progression and the nominating Branch or Section bear this in mind when making a nomination.

If there is more than one nomination for each post a ballot will be conducted in accordance with the Regulations of the Institute.

Closing date for receipt of nominations is noon Monday 11 October 2021.

Nomination forms are available to download from our website www.tradingstandards.uk/nominations


Fellowship Nominations for Award in 2022

The College Annual General Meeting will be held at the delayed Symposium at end of September, therefore the deadline for nominations has, this year, been extended till end of July.  

In the current COVID climate and recognising the difficulties in getting the application form signed, we are happy to accept the completed form without all the signatures.

Please as a minimum show the names and email address of proposer, seconder and the 6 other supporting members so that verification can be sought if needed.

Application forms can be requested from the registrar brians@tsi.org.uk or via membership@tsi.org.uk

The College is aware of the need to reflect the diversity of the profession, and would welcome applications from diverse backgrounds and BAME groups that better reflect the profile of the profession.
