Hi All,

Just want to quickly share the outcome of our AGM last night with the wider group. We were able to confirm our new Chair, Vice-Chair and Treasurer, however we were unable to fill the position of Secretary.

First of all I would like to congratulate our new Chair Derek Doyle , our new Vice-Chair David Maher (me) and our new Treasurer Stephen Walsh

In terms of the role of Secretary we are still looking for a candidate who may wish to take this on, or alternatively we may split the role between two different people to lessen the workload. Please see below for the outlined role of the Secretary for more info.

Secretary

The Secretary shall have responsibility for the following:

1. Maintenance of the roll of members.
2. The conduct of votes within the branch.
3. Correspondence with and on behalf of the branch and its members.
4. Preparation and retention of minutes of meetings.
5. Preparation and circulation of the agenda of meetings.
6. Organisation and advertising of meetings and motions.
7. Organisation and notification of Annual General Meetings.

We would be happy to split this role into the following areas of responsibility:

Area 1
Maintenance of the roll of members. Including adding new members to all social media and email lists.
Preparation and retention of minutes of meetings.
The conduct of votes within the branch.

Area 2
Correspondence with and on behalf of the branch and its members.
Preparation and circulation of the agenda of meetings.
Preparation and circulation of the agenda of meetings.
Organisation and advertising of meetings and motions.
Organisation and notification of Annual General Meetings.

If anyone would be interested in volunteering for the role of secretary themselves or interested in taking on one of the two areas of responsibility it would be great if you could let Derek or I know as soon as possible at [email protected] and [email protected]

Thanks in advance
David

I’m one and I think you might be too. 3 years ago I was part of setting up @SocDems. Very proud of our people & policies. If we are to make a big change, we need your help. If anyone here is thinking of helping a campaign or running themselves, give me a shout!

So the artist takes the financial brunt for standing up for egalitarian principles? Not the companies or Arts Council? Not fair. (Quote from @IrishTimes today) #SoundingTheFeminists #WakingTheFeminists
