The Council of the College of Podiatry is both the College’s Board of Directors and its strategic body. It has 14 members elected by the Voting Members of the College.

An election to fill vacancies on the Council will take place in early 2021. Newly-elected members of Council will take office after the College's Annual General Meeting on 1 July 2021.  

A call for nomination for candidates to stand for election to Council was published on 29 October 2020, with a deadline of 15 December.
