Members get the chance to shape CSP’s future

CSP members are to get the chance to shape the society’s future in November, following a decision by its council today.


CSP members are being urged to play their part in shaping the future of their society

The council gave the go-ahead to proposals for a number of changes, including the move to a much smaller governing body – 12 members instead of the current 27.

If approved, the new-look council would lead the CSP on the big issues affecting the physiotherapy profession. The smaller size and strategic focus is in line with current day thinking on organisational efficiency.

The proposals will go to the society’s annual general meeting on Saturday 11 November in Birmingham, during the Physiotherapy UK event.

CSP’s current chair, Catherine Pope, said she was keen that members read the full proposals and vote on them.’They follow an 18-month review’ she said. ‘We’ve listened to members’ views and learnt from good practice in other similar organisations.

‘We want a council which includes the 12 best people to lead the profession, regardless of role or location,’ said Ms Pope. ‘They’ll draw on expertise from across the membership, with opportunities to contribute that make best use of members’ precious time.’

‘If the AGM agrees the proposals, this will be a fantastic opportunity for members to shape the future of the physiotherapy profession. Watch this space for details of how to stand for election or contribute to a working group.’

The CSP will be emailing all members at the start of October with full details of the changes and publishing more information at
