Dear ISH Member,

On behalf of the Council of the International Society of Hypertension (ISH), it is my pleasure to invite you to nominate new members for ISH Council.

The Council of the ISH is important as the key active body to further the aspirations and activities of the ISH. Council members should reflect the diversity of ISH members in terms of geography and age. In this respect, the contribution of younger members and those from less represented regions is crucial for the future of the ISH. For reference, on-going members of Council come from Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Israel, Italy, Korea, Nigeria, South Africa, Sweden, U.K. and the U.S.A.

Members of Council have responsibilities as Trustees of the Society. This carries specific commitment to the business of the ISH and so nominees need to be able to devote time and energy to serve the needs of the ISH. Nominees also need be aware that as Trustees there exist general responsibilities, as defined according to the Charity Commission of England and Wales (
