Researchers' Society Committee

The organisation of the Researchers’ Society is conducted by the Researchers’ Society Committee. Membership of the Committee is open to all members who attend Committee meetings and show an active interest in the running of the society.

The Researchers Society has a representative on the Centre’s Executive Committee, as a full member, thereby ensuring that the needs of the Centre’s researchers can be presented to the key decision makers.
