Join SHCG committee! Nominations now open
Are you an early or mid-career professional working in a museum or heritage site? Are you looking to enhance your skills or find new opportunities to do something different?
SHCG is looking for a Chair Elect and four new Ordinary Trustees this year: Conference Organiser x 2, Seminar Organiser and Membership Secretary.
You do not have to be a social history curator to be a member or Trustee of SHCG! We welcome anyone working with social history in museums. All you need for a role on committee is solid organisational and communication skills, an eye for detail and bags of initiative and enthusiasm! For full role descriptions please visit our Committee page. You will also need to attend 3 committee meetings per year (travel expenses are reimbursed) plus SHCG's AGM.
Ordinary trustees serve two years and can have various roles which are assigned at the first meeting after the AGM. The Chair Elect serves for three years: one year as Chair Elect and two years as Chair.
Make a difference to the museum sector! Fantastic CPD opportunities await! What previous committee members have said...
“It has given me new skills and networking opportunities”
“It gave me more confidence and improved my team working skills”
“It made me realise how much I enjoyed organising which helped me step up my career. It has made me a more confident decision maker in my day job.”
“I can call many fellow SHCGers friends, and continue to value their help, advice and inspiration!”
SHCG is actively seeking to increase diversity within the organisation so please spread the word to your colleagues and wider networks.
