Early Career Forum Executive Committee

The EC Forum Executive Committee contributes to the delivery of the Society’s strategic objectives by supporting the careers and professional development of microbiologists. The committee coordinates the work of the Early Career Forum, ensuring that early career members and their views are included across all Society activities by having representation across all committees.

The Committee has a subgroup of four representatives who bring the early career viewpoint to the Society's Divisions.
