As well as serving on the IOP Council, Brian played a leading role in the co-ordination of the UK nuclear physics community, serving on the Divisional Affairs Committee as Chair of the Nuclear and Particle Physics Division and on the Nuclear Physics Group. He was instrumental in the UK Heads of (Nuclear) Groups forum, co-ordinating the activities of the leaders of the nuclear physics community, and frequently assumed a leading role in the community, which became crucial in the 1990s and early 2000s following the loss of the UK's own nuclear physics facility. Brian was appointed to the STFC Particle Physics and Nuclear Physics (PPAN) Committee in 2007. More recently, as Head of Department at the University of York, Brian stewarded the Department to Project Juno Champion status and subsequently chaired the Institute's Juno Assessment Panel.
