How to join your branch, district or section committee

Your branch, district or section represents IOSH in your area, providing member benefits, sharing knowledge and leading the local IOSH community. It is supported by a group of dedicated member volunteers who make up the committee.

Resources for volunteers, including committee roles and responsibilities, can be found by visiting the Volunteer Portal.

Important changes to the AGM, nomination and election process

As the global pandemic continues to disrupt the way that we would normally do things IOSH has taken measures to enable branches, districts and sections to be able to hold their AGMs and conduct elections on a virtual platform in a safe, fair and effective way.

Regulation 15 which governs branches, districts and sections has been amended to enable branch AGMs to be held virtually and for nominations and elections to take place electronically.

A summary of the main changes to Regulation 15, FAQs and a timeline will also help members when considering how and when the processes will be implemented.
