BAPS Executive Vacancy

There is now a vacancy for an Executive Committee member for 2014-2017. See details for application.



Ms Majella MacCullagh is due to retire from the Executive Committee.  Nominations for an Executive committee member should be duly proposed and seconded, with confirmation that the nominee has agreed to stand and should be with the BAPS office by 30th November 2014. Nominations should come from UK consultants

The Constitution of BAPS outlines the composition of the Executive Committee.

Constitution, rule 8: “The day-to-day business of the Association will be conducted by the Executive Committee; this will consist of seven members including the President, the President Elect, the Honorary Secretary and the Honorary Treasurer.  One member will practice in Southern England or Wales, one in the Midlands or the North of England and one in Scotland or Ireland.”


Traditionally the regional split applies to the directly elected Executive members, rather than those sitting ‘ex-officio’.  With this in mind, nominations for the Executive Committee member vice Majella McCullagh should be from Scotland or Ireland.


The Present members of the Executive Committee are as follows:-


Mr David Burge                     President (Southampton)

Mr Rick Turnock                     Past-President  (Liverpool)

Mr Simon Huddart                 Honorary Secretary, until July 2015 (Cardiff)

Mr Ian Sugarman                    Honorary Treasurer, until January 2015 (Leeds)

Mr Bruce Jaffray                     (Newcastle)

Professor Mark Davenport      (London)

Miss Majella McCullagh         (Belfast)
