There are two Standing Committees.

It consists of the Presidents of all Sections or their representatives together with appropriate ex officio members including the Dean amongst others. The Academic Board’s remit is to provide academic initiatives and to consider changes and improvements to the organisation of meeting programmes for the Sections and the Society.


The Dean (Dr Fiona Moss) is responsible for Continuing Professional Development and the accreditation of Section meetings and e-learning programmes.
