The BSHS is committed to remaining a global organisation, and we are very keen to welcome more International Advisors (IAs) to strengthen our presence throughout Europe and the rest of the world. Our International Advisers publicise BSHS activities and opportunities, while reciprocally informing Council about relevant events in their area. As well as exchanging ideas and information, options include reduced or waived fees for annual conferences, the right to use the phrase ‘BSHS International Advisor’ in CVs, commenting on Society policies, suggesting collaborative ventures, writing a ‘Perspective’ piece for the BJHS, and attending Council meetings.

IAs are appointed on a two-year rolling basis. If you would like to discuss joining us as an IA, please contact BSHS Vice-President Patricia Fara at [email protected] Some further information is available on our International Advisers web page.
