Yes we know that anything serious and important can be boring…
The NPRS being an not for profit society needs to be run in a fair and democratic way and for this end we need volunteers to fill out Committee.
The Committee are the guys who get things done. The people who make it happen and who give their own free time to make the society work.
We have a small number of both Committee and Non-Committee roles which we are looking for volunteers to take on in 2018.
Do you have a little free time and want to make a difference? Do you feel we should be heading in a different direction and want your say? Being part of the committee gives you a vote on any decisions the society makes.
If you are interested below are the roles we have to fill. Please send your information to firstname.lastname@example.org
If more than one person applies for a role the membership will have the chance to vote on who they wish to take up the position.
