To serve on the committee you must be active on our Community Group.
There is no obligation to have owned or currently own a Pouched Rat, however an understanding of the troubles and challenges is useful.
Selections for committee are made at the end each year and if a position is contested between multiple applicants, a vote is held by the community to choose who they believe best represents them.
The only position not elected in this way is chair, which is selected based on a decision of both the outgoing and incoming committee members.
Positions vary year to year based on requirements but generally duties are given based on
- Social Media / YouTube Channel
- Website and Digital
- Community and Members
- Breeding and Policies
