Would you like to be a Governing Board member of the British Acupuncture Council?

We are the leading professional organisation for traditional acupuncture, accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. We provide information to people about acupuncture, set exemplary professional standards, regulate as well as support members at both national and local level and currently have around 3000 members.

Who we're looking for

We are currently looking for Governing Board members to join our nine person Board. These will be talented individuals with the right personal qualities and necessary experience at Board level or other similar experience. The role is unpaid apart from travel expenses and a daily meeting remuneration for £200, but carries with it the opportunity to make a real difference to the acupuncture profession. We need strategic thinkers with excellent communication skills, as well as the ability to assimilate complex information and ask challenging strategic questions. Ideally, the suitable candidate will also have skills, knowledge or experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Strategic experience in education
  • Strategic experience in communications
  • Finance

All Governing Board members are expected to share the values of the BAcC and to be able to commit both the time and energy needed to do a great job. The Board meets three times a year with an additional AGM and occasional 'away days'.

What you’ll do

Together with fellow Board members, your responsibilities would include:

  • setting our strategy and monitoring its implementation
  • agreeing the annual business plan and performance targets
  • approving and monitoring the budget
  • monitoring risk and compliance with regulatory and statutory requirements

How to apply

The deadline for returning completed applications is May 30 2015. Interviews will be held during June and July.
We are committed to diverse representation, and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
