SCS Council and Committees

The Society Framework

The Society of Cosmetic Scientists – Who we are

The Society is administered by the SCS Head Office staff which includes the Head of Operations, Administrative Assistant, Education Programme Coordinator, Course Administrator & Office Support and the Marketing, Communications & Events Coordinator

The Society is made up of around 1,000 individual members. Networking is a vital activity and a huge benefit for SCS Members

A full SCS member can join the SCS Council for a term of 3-5 years (see AGM details below). Council holds between six or seven meetings each year.  A full SCS member can also be nominated for Officer roles – Vice President, Hon Secretary and Hon Treasurer although it is preferred that experience of  the SCS organisation is obtained first by joining SCS Council or a Committee.

There are 7 Committees within the SCS and two regional groups. The Committees meet regularly and report their activities to the SCS Council. As a Full, Associate, Affiliate or Student member of the Society, you can join a Committee of your choice by contacting the Head Office  Your name will then be passed onto the chairperson of your chosen Committee.

SCS Council reports back to the membership via the SCS internal and external communication channels 

Nomination papers for vacancies on Council are sent out to all Full Members in April each year via a third-party nomination platform.  The Annual General Meeting (AGM) takes place annually in May at which time a new Council is formed for the forthcoming year.

Full criteria for all vacancies will be distributed in April with the nomination papers.  If you require these details in advance, please contact the Head Office
