The Nutrition Society is governed by a Board of Trustees elected by our members. Our Trustees, traditionally called Honorary Officers, are elected for a three year term, after which they may be re-elected for another three years. However, they cannot serve more than two terms concurrently.
Our Trustees, headed by our President, collectively set the strategic direction of the Society and oversee all of our activities. Their decision making is assisted by the Advisory Council. The Nutrition Society is a registered charity and as such our Trustees have legal responsibilities to act in accordance with the laws governing all charities, overseen by the Charities Commission.
The Society's Annual Charity Meeting
The Annual Charity Meeting traditionally is held in July. The meeting is open to all Nutrition Society members. The Society's President and the Trustees (traditionally known as Honorary Officers) will provide an update on the Society. The meeting will formally announce elected positions on the Board of Trustees and the Advisory Council members, plus will provide an opportunity for members to ask the Trustees questions.
