BSG Officer Appointments
Being a BSG Officer is an exciting opportunity to contribute at a strategic level to the Society. Most officer roles will be advertised in Spring, to be appointed in June. Occasionally, posts will be advertised outside this schedule. Officer posts are appointed by competitive interview.
Elections are key to ensuring democracy and representation within BSG committees. Elections are held usually in the spring for Elected Council and Section Committee members, and in the Autumn for Clinical Research Groups and Regional Representatives.
The BSG uses a company called Civica Election Services to administrate elections. Members will be sent communications about upcoming elections when available and can find out more about the different roles, including detailed job descriptions and member eligibility below.
BSG Elected Roles
BSG Elected Council represents the interests of the members of the Society in Council and other committees and external bodies.
All BSG members except Taster members are eligible to vote for Elected Council.
Our Section Committees focus on the academic, cultural and professional advancement of their special interest. Participating in a section committee provides you with an opportunity to contribute your expertise and shape the future of UK gastroenterology and hepatology.
All BSG members except Taster members who are a member of the section can vote. Members can belong to up to 5 sections, which is determined by your chosen “Professional Interests”. You can check your “Professional Interests” here: My BSG Profile.
Clinical Research Group (CRGs)
Clinical Research Groups (CRGs) have been formed covering Endoscopy, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Food & Function, and Liver. Their aim is to increase the quality and quantity of clinical GI and liver research in the UK.
BSG Regional Representatives are elected for each of the regions within England and are part of the BSG Clinical Services and Standards (CSSC) Committee.
BSG Trainee Committee IMT Representative
The IMT Representative role is an excellent opportunity for future gastroenterology and hepatology trainees to have their voice heard in this national committee. Nominees must be Taster members of the society.
