Working together, the Board of Trustees
, Paramedic Council and Chief Executive Group provide collective leadership for the College of Paramedics and ensure the effective running of the charity, delivery of strategy
and active membership representation.
The Paramedic Council has the ability to steer and shape the College’s ongoing work and future aspirations by providing a platform for representatives to advocate for their members, ensuring a strong and articulate voice in all that the College does, and by providing a clear and vital communication channel between the College and members.
The Council hold regular meetings to discuss regional and national issues that are important to our members, playing an instrumental part in ensuring that strategy is developed and delivered with membership interests at its heart.
The Council are supported by Head Office staff to develop connections with members within their region or sector and build effective member groups and networks. As the voice of the membership, the Council collect themes, trends, initiatives and views.
Full members of the College of Paramedics are eligible to stand as a candidate to be a Member Representative when a position becomes available. Candidates are voted on by full members from the region of the open seat(s).
The maximum tenure for a Member Representative is two terms, each term consisting of 2 years. At the end of their first term, Member Representatives must consider their wider commitments, reflect on their first term, and decide whether to stand, alongside other full members of the College, to be elected for a second term.
