BARS Council Elections 2018
The British Association of Retinal Screening is run by an elected council of volunteers drawn from a range of roles within the field of diabetic eye screening across the UK. We have four upcoming vacancies on the BARS Council, and are therefore looking for four enthusiastic individuals to fill those positions.
As a BARS council member you will be expected to attend four council meetings a year, one of which is at the annual BARS conference. The other three are generally held in London, although other locations may be used as required, and your travel expenses will be paid to attend these meetings.
To stand for election to the BARS Council you must be a BARS member currently working within diabetic eye screening in some capacity, and if successful, you will be elected to council for a period of 3 years. During that time you will have the opportunity to contribute to everything BARS does. That may include helping to organise the annual conference, working to develop our education and training resources, assisting with the production of the Diabetic Eye Journal and suggesting new ways for BARS to support its members. We do our best to utilise council members' particular skills whenever possible, but the main requirement is an enthusiasm and interest in diabetic eye screening, and a willingness to give up your time to help those working within it. The support of your manager is important, and if you are successful in the election, BARS will seek their approval before confirming your place on council.
