Constitutional Amendment update

The two constitutional amendments also on the ballot papers were also heavily supported but unfortunately not enough members voted to meet the 66% of current membership rule.

The executive have decided to put these two amendments to the membership again early in the new year and encourage all members to ensure they cast their vote.

The amendments are as follows:

Amendment #1:
Clinical haematologists are eligible for full co-equal membership of the Medicine Modality of ICORG.

Amendment #2:
Practitioners of the speciality of Clinical Oncology/Radiotherapy are eligible to join either the Medicine or Radiation modalities, but not both, according to their predominant research interest.
