Committee positions are 2 year posts, with our constitution dictating that an officer can stay in position for no more that 2 consecutive posts.  Committee positions become available each year, when nominations for upcoming vacant positions are sought ahead of AGM (usually held in September).  Postions may also become available during a term of post, so we are always interested to hear from you if you would like to be involved on the committee of the Obesity Specialist Group.  Please contact the secretary at the details above.
