At the iO’s Annual General Meeting held on Friday 20 November 2020, which saw the highest turn out by members of any previous AGM, Daniel Collis was elected as the new member of the Council.
This year’s elections saw a field of six strong candidates for the seat vacated by Ben Katz, Immediate Past President, who stepped down from his place on the iO council after nine years of dedicated service to the iO and the development of the profession.
Daniel graduated from the European School of Osteopathy with a first-class master’s degree. He also represents recent graduates as a member of the iO’s Policy and Standards Committee and is supporting the newly formed iO Student Committee, a forum for representing students from all the educational institutions.
Ahead of his election, Daniel said,
“I am a recent ESO graduate with an ambitious aim of joining the Institute of Osteopathy council. I wish to work tirelessly to ensure the IO is doing its utmost to advance osteopaths interests, primarily improving the awareness and reputation of osteopaths amongst the public and medical profession.”
The iO Council and executive would like to welcome Daniel on board and look forward to working with him in our efforts to continue to support, unite, develop and promote the osteopathic profession.
We will bring you more from Daniel and his aims as new member of council in Osteopathy Today.
