Your Committee Needs You!

Since it was established in 1974, SHCG has led the way in improving not only the status of social history in museums, but also museum interpretation, care of collections and how museums involve their communities. This could be your opportunity to become more closely involved with its work.

Nominations are needed for 5 x Ordinary Members and Chair Elect. Duties that Ordinary Members undertake include Conference Organisers, Seminar Organisers, Web Editor, Membership Secretary, Journal and News Editors. These roles are allocated at the first committee meeting following conference.

Completed nomination forms should be given to any member of Committee during conference before 9pm Friday 9th July, or emailed to Georgina Young, SHCG Secretary ( / by 5pm Monday 5th July. Elections will be held at the AGM on 10th July at Austin Court, Birmingham.

Committee ‘role descriptions’ are available here and current committee members will be happy to discuss their duties with you in more detail if required.

Serving on committee does involve some hard work, but it’s great fun…and looks good on your CV and/or CPD!
