How to become an Officer of the Society

Officer vacancies are advertised through the Society’s email newsletter. Any member who seeks to become an Officer but does not have a proposer or seconder, is encouraged to contact any Officer or member of the Executive who will act as and support them in identifying further proposers and seconders.

What is the time commitment of being an Officer?

Officers carry a substantial workload within the Society. As well as attending Executive and Council, and participating in Committees as required by their role, Officers’ individual work usually takes an average commitment of around half a day a week.

How are Officers supported?

Officers receive administrative support from the Society’s secretary, Rosa Bladon. In addition, where in-person meetings are required, their travel expenses are reimbursed. It is expected that, where possible, Officers would attend the Annual Conference, subject to the payment of conference registration fees.
