Your Branch and NUJ need you
LONDON Freelance Branch has vacancies for a Branch Secretary and for a Membership Secretary. The work of the Branch Secretary includes writing up and circulating the minutes of meetings (usually taken by somebody else), following up on matters arising and liaising with the venue management on hiring a space for meetings. The Membership Secretary's responsibilities include welcoming new members in the brief new members' spot immediately before meetings.
We expect Committee members to commit to turning up to most LFB Committee meetings, which are from 6.30-8.30 at the NUJ King's Cross HQ on the third Monday of each month. Jobshares in both the Branch Secretary and Membership Secretary roles are encouraged.
If you are considering standing for one of these roles, get in touch a member of the Committee. There's a list of LFB Committee members online (with vacancies) at londonfreelance.org/lfb/contact.html. Elections for vacant posts will be held at the next LFB meeting.
The NUJ centrally has elections coming up for seats on its Industrial Councils, committees and elected bodies representing various sectors and demographics within the Union - for details of vacancies see www.nuj.org.uk/about/union-democracy/nuj-elections/ - and to seek nomination come to the November Branch meeting (see the meetings listing).
