ATTENTION: National Post Available - EXTENSION TO DEADLINE
STOP PRESS: Deadline for Nominations extended til Friday 20th September
As you are aware we have currently been without a National Secretary. We sent out communications in August requesting for applications to come forward to fill this post. Unfortunately we did not receive any applications.
However we have good news, Alexandra Bennett our current National Executive Administrator has offered to step up to the vital role of National Secretary. The National Executive have accepted her nomination however this now means the post of National Executive Administrator is vacant.
National Executive Administrator – what does it involve?
This role provides general administrative support to the National Exec, such as replying to requests via the ‘Contact Us’ email, collating reports, circulating the Exec Meeting agendas, and recording the action points agreed at Exec Meetings. It is less time-intensive than other roles on the Exec and a great way to find out how National works. It really is a rewarding post.
Time commitments until May 2014 are as follows:
- National Exec Skype conference call once a month (3rd Monday of each month at 8.30pm)
- Council Meeting 27th-28th September 2013 (Tamworth)
- Exec Budget Meeting 30th Nov - 1st Dec (Birmingham)
- Exec Meeting 25th-26th January 2014 (Manchester)
- Council Meeting 22nd-23rd February 2014 (Tamworth)
- Exec Meeting 12th-13th April 2014 (Burton on Trent)
- National AGM 7th-11th May 2014 (Nottingham)
If you would like to get involved on a National level we would love to hear from you.
Please contact Alex Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know of your interest. The deadline for your nomination is 20th September 2013, 5pm.
