Nominations for candidacy as Ordinary Members of Council are open. Any member may nominate any other member for this position; there will be three positions contested in this summer's election. Council hopes there will be approximately twice as many candidates as open positions in any election.
Nominations must be made in writing and communicated to the Chair of Search Committee, John Irving (email@example.com), by either e-mail or post (see the on-line Directory). Each nomination must be made by one member of the RMA, seconded by another member, and confirmed by the candidate him- or herself (who must be a member in good standing, with their subscription for 2012 paid up by the time of nomination; in case of doubt consult the Executive Officer firstname.lastname@example.org). Self-nomination is not accepted. Nominations must be received by 15 June 2012.
Ordinary Members of Council are expected to take an active part in the governance of the RMA. Their tenure of office will run for three years beginning on 1 January following their election. Council meets three times annually: normally on Saturday during the Research Students' Conference in early January, about the beginning of July, and (from 2013) on during the Annual Conference in September (the first and last of these take place wherever the conferences are held, the July meeting normally in London). They are also expected to attend the Annual General Meeting during the Annual Conference. In addition, Ordinary Members of Council are expected to serve on one or more committees. Proceedings Committee meets three times a year (mid December, mid April, and July), Publications Committee twice (on the mornings before the Council meetings in January and July), Finance and Membership Committee twice (on the same day as the April meeting of Proceedings Committee, and in preparation for the September meeting of Council), Student Committee once (during the Research Students' Conference); Awards Committee, Search Committee, and External Affairs Committee do most of their work without face-to-face meetings.

Ordinary Members of Council are legally Directors of the Association as a company limited by guarantee, and its Trustees as a charity. Detailed information about these responsibilities will be available on the RMA website shortly.
