Membership Secretary

A vacancy has arisen for the role of Membership Secretary within the Society and expressions of interest are invited from members who may wish to apply for the role.
This is a key role within the operation of the Society and offers the opportunity to become fully involved in the running of the Society and to make an important contribution to its successful operation.
The principal responsibilities and elements in the role of Membership Secretary are as follows:

  • To maintain the Society Membership Excel Spreadsheet: ensuring it is accurate and up to date; that it is secure and backed up; and that relevant information from it is circulated to specified Committee members in line with GDPR requirements.
  • To process new and renewal membership application: checking information provided; allocating membership numbers to new members; and acknowledging applications and resolving any issues.
  • To process membership payments (cheque and Paypal): paying these into the Society account; liaising with the Treasurer.
  • To answer questions and issues raised through the Membership Secretary Inbox.
  • To attend Society Committee (Quarterly) Meetings and provide membership updates when required. These are currently held over Zoom.

The role will require familiarity with Microsoft Excel and Word and email. The successful candidate will also be required to liaise and work with other Committee members as part of their role.
The Membership Secretary’s role is a year round one but the main activity is centred around the membership renewal period from November to January. Applications are invited from any member resident within the UK.
Full support and training will be given during the handover period and a Society laptop and all relevant material will be provided.
