Council and Committee vacancies

The Society regularly seeks new members to join its Council and committees to help shape the future of endocrinology.

We encourage all members to apply to join or to nominate others when vacancies arise, bearing in mind any specifics of the individual committees and any specific skills for the role/s where applicable.
