At our September 2021 AGM the Committee will have a vacancy for the role of Treasurer and Membership Secretary. These roles are currently combined into a single one but if anyone would be interested in taking on either or both of these roles could you please speak to a Committee member. The current Treasurer would be willing to shadow you for the first year.
At the next AGM I will be retiring from the Executive Committee which means we will also have a vacancy for the General Secretary role. I will, of course, be able to shadow you for the first year. If you would be interested in taking on this role please speak to me.
