SHCG Committee Needs You!

Nominations are now open to become a Social History Curators Group trustee.  Being a Trustee is a great way to open up your network and get more involved in the wider sector… it has helped many previous committee members to develop new skills and even get ahead in their careers.  Why not you?

This year, SHCG is looking for a Secretary and 2 Ordinary Trustees.  There are a variety of roles on committee for Ordinary Trustees, whilst the Secretary’s role is a bit more specific.  All the role descriptions can be found on our website here.

If you’d like to stand, please complete the attached form and return it to me by email to Jenny Brown ( by 17:00 on Friday 18 May.

All SHCG members are eligible for election, except Trustees who have already served three consecutive terms.  You do not need to be present at AGM to stand.  The Secretary is a named post and serves for three years.  Ordinary Trustees serve two years and can have various roles which are assigned at the first meeting after AGM.  Late nominations will be accepted at AGM only if they and their seconder are present at AGM.  Please give the signed form to any member of the Committee at AGM by 13:00 on Thursday 18 June 2015.

If you want more information or to talk through what's involved, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with either Jenny or anyone else on committee for a confidential and commitment-free chat about the options.
