Elected Council Members

Three vacancies will arise for Elected Council Members, one for the West geographical area, one for the Midlands geographical area, and one for the London geographical area.

To be eligible to be nominated, you must be a full member of the ISM whose registered address is in the specified area and your nomination must be signed by two full members whose registered addresses are also in the same specified area.

Appointed Council Members

Two vacancies will arise for Appointed Council Members. Council has determined that it would like to receive nominations from full members who are composers or performers. Council is also interested in receiving applications from musicians working in rock, pop, jazz or folk.

To be considered for this position, you must be a full member of the ISM and complete the form (PDF below) setting out your relevant experience and skills.

For both the Elected and the Appointed positions, Council is keen to hear from younger members or members from ethnic minority backgrounds.

All candidates for both Elected and Appointed Council roles will meet with the Nominations Committee – made up of the President, two members of Council and the Chief Executive – as part of the process.
