Would you like to help?

At the DIG AGM each year those present vote in the committee for the forthcoming year.  Normally that is the 3 officers plus 6 committee members.  However this year, if the proposal is carried at the AGM, then there will be 8 committee places.  We have one person standing down so we are looking for new people to volunteer to come on to the committee.

You may ask why we need more people and there are two easy answers.

1.     We need to spread the workload amongst more to reduce the number of volunteer hours spent per person.

2.    For the sake of continuity we need to have some overlap when committee members stand down.

The current DIG Chair has already stated that she will be standing down at the AGM in 2019 and ideally we would like to find someone to come on to committee this coming year who will be willing to take over the Chair role in 2019. 

Committee roles are varied.  Some are technical by nature whilst others require more general administration skills.  Each member has a discrete area of responsibility, but pitches in when we undertake larger projects such as the biennial DI Expo.

If you are interested in standing but feel you would like more information prior to volunteering, then do contact digchair@rps.org

Do consider your nomination – volunteering is a great way to get involved and get more from your Society membership by engaging with it.
