We have thirteen branches. All areas have an Area coordinator and a National Committee member. The Area coordinator is responsible for coordinating meetings and seminars for the local branch members, while the National Committee member represents each branch at a national level. In some areas these duties are undertaken by the same volunteer.
We have 3 full time sub groups - Pressure Injury Advisory Group (PIAG), Leg Ulcer Advisory Group (LUAG) and the Education Advisory Group (EAG). In addition to these we set up Project Groups for time to time. The Wound Bed Preparation Working Group (WBPWG) and any other that the Society feels we have an need for.
The Society has a selection process for each of these groups. When new members are being sought we send out an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the whole membership, encouraging our passionate members to put themselves forward for consideration.
