Dear Prospective Candidates

It was brought to our attention last year that campaigning candidates were using the RPS logo on some of their social media missives. Unfortunately it is not appropriate to use the RPS logo as this could be construed that the Society is aiding particular candidates in their campaign. Could we please therefore request that you refrain from using the RPS logo on any of your campaigning material.

With best wishes,

The Returning Officers
Robbie Turner (England)
Mair Davies (Wales)
Alex MacKinnon (Scotland)
