Trainee representatives

One of the trainees' first tasks upon starting the programme is to decide on their cohort's representatives for the policy groups and the Programme Board. The nomination process is a matter for the trainees themselves. It is worth looking at the terms of reference of the groups so that representatives will know what is required in terms of number of meetings attended and responsibilities. Each cohort should decide on the election process, monitor the time the representative serves (usually between one and three years), and decide on appropriate procedures to communicate concerns to the representatives to bring to meetings, and to receive feedback following discussion.
