​The JMF (junior member forum) is a weekend-long BMA conference dedicated to giving junior members the chance to be heard on the issues that matter most to you.

The forum provides a unique opportunity to get involved with the BMA, with the content of the weekend shaped by matters of importance to attendees.

The weekend features speeches from medico-political leaders, with plenty of opportunity to network with other junior members, as well as senior BMA leaders from all branches of practice.

Each year, the JMF elect an executive committee to organise the conference, ensuring it remains relevant to the membership, with several delegates elected to represent the forum at the ARM.

 

How to join the JMF executive committee

There are many advantages to becoming involved in our committees. You can actively influence BMA policy-making and negotiations, represent your colleagues' voices and develop your leadership skills. 

Each committee has a few routes to becoming an elected member. In the case of JMF executive committee, this is: 

Direct elections
  • Seats/term - every year, elections for eight seats on the JMF executive committee take place for a one-session term.
  • Timeline - election takes place during the forum which is usually held in January.
