Voting and engagement
Voting will open on 9 March 2022 and close at (midday) 11 April 2022.
- Fellows, in good standing, will be emailed by Civica Election Services to direct them to the online voting portal where candidate election material will be presented and votes can be cast.
- Candidates for president will also complete two activities designed to aid engagement. A written Q&A and recorded Hustings event will be made available on the RCP website to coincide with the opening of voting.
- Pre-registered fellows physically attending the presidential election, as part of College Day, will have an option to vote in person at the election of the president, to maintain tradition.
- The following links (behind the login and nominations now closed) contain further background information for fellows and members on the roles and process.
The result of the presidential election will be announced at College Day on Monday 11 April 2022 (hybrid meeting).
The clinical vice president and councillor announcements will follow in the week beginning 18 April 2022.
The RCP extends its thanks to all fellows who have nominated others or agreed to stand for election. The process to stand requires determination and commitment, on top of the candidate’s normal day-to-day pressures as physicians and individuals.
