Section Councils play a pivotal role at the RSM and reply on our members’ active engagement.

If you are interested in joining the Section Council, you are required to complete an application form. Please note you should be an existing RSM member to join a Section Council. The RSM encourages applications from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds.  

In addition, you will be asked supply a CV via email of no more than three pages in MS Word format; your CV should include your name at the top, but must not include any contact details or any other personal details such as date of birth, gender etc.

Once your request is sent, a Council Administrator will get in touch and let you know if your application is successful - this may take some time, depending on when the Council is next meeting to discuss applications. Your contact details will be made available to Council representatives who may also get in touch to discuss your application. By submitting this application, you agree for your contact details to be shared with members of the Council.
