The President and Treasurer of the RHS are elected annually by the members of the Society at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The other elected Members of Council usually serve for five years with at least three retiring each year. New members are elected at the AGM with candidates having been nominated in accordance with the nomination process.
The deadline for candidates seeking the support of Council in the 2019 elections is Friday 19 October 2018. The deadline for candidates wishing to proceed directly to the election is 1 March 2019.
The RHS is committed to providing equal opportunities and will welcome nominations from any eligible member of the Society.
If you would like to volunteer as RHS President from 2020, find out more.
For more information about RHS elections, please refer to the Charter and bye-laws and associated regulations. For further queries, email the Secretary or telephone 020 7821 3068.
