Operation and Funding

The Genetics Society is run by an open meeting of the membership held each year. It is governed by a Committee that is elected on a rotational basis and includes dedicated representatives from major fields of genetics, as well as separately elected officers and co-opted members with responsibilities for the society's finances, the meetings programme, newsletters, external relations, the website, post-graduate activities  and sponsorship. The Society's President, traditionally an eminent geneticist, is assisted by up to three Vice-presidents in promoting and disseminating the opinions and activities of the UK genetics community.


The Genetics Society is a registered charity, dependent on the subscription income provided from its members. It also derives a significant income from its journals.
