What is the Primate Society of Great Britain Council?

The Council is made up of elected members, bringing together experience and skills that can be utilised to increase the Society's impact and evolution.  These skills include current primatology knowledge, publications, research methods and technology, marketing and communications, finance, graphic design, event planning and so much more!

Council members are elected at the Annual General Meeting and remain in office for a term of three years, but no longer than two terms (six years).
