SHNH International Representatives

Representatives are appointed by Council and are able to attend Council meetings.  Their term of appointment is initially for three years, with an annual review by Council. This can be extended as approved by Council.

The Society currently has international representatives, in Australasia, Central Europe, North America, Japan, Italy, Spain and South East Asia. Any member resident outside England who would be interested in becoming a representative of the Society should contact the Representatives' Coordinator Mrs Malgosia Nowak-Kemp.
