Nominations are now being sought for two senior volunteer roles within the Girls’ Brigade England & Wales Network - The Girls’ Brigade England & Wales (GBEW) Network Chair and the GBEW Honorary Treasurer.
The GBEW Network Chair is open to any suitably skilled person who is a member of the GBEW Network, but nominations may only be made by the GBEW Network Council members. The person elected will be in position for a three year period from March 2018 with the option to stand for a further three years in 2021.
The GBEW Network Chair will be taking up the role at a key point as we celebrate our 125th anniversary in 2018 and continue to progress our strategic priorities, helping to shape the Network Executive and its relationship with the Trustee Board.
The GBEW Honorary Treasurer position arises as our current Treasurer Barbara Darby will be stepping down in March 2018 following a number of years’ service to GB in this role. The role is open to anyone within the GBEW Network or from wider society who is suitably skilled, but nominations may only be made by the GBEW Network Council members. The Honorary Treasurer is elected on an annual basis and is a key role in ensuring oversight of GB’s finances.
The closing date for nominations to both roles is Monday 14 May 2018 (extended from 26 January 2018. The GBEW Network Executive will then elect to each position and this will be ratified at the AGM in March 2018 with those elected taking up office immediately after the AGM.
If you’d like further information regarding the roles or process please contact Julie Murdy, GBM Director. An information pack and nomination forms for each role can be found below.
These are key positions in support of the work of Girls’ Brigade, please prayerfully consider who God may be calling forward to these role and ensure that nominations are submitted by the closing date.
On Wednesday, Girlguiding released its annual Girls’ Attitudes survey. The biggest survey of its kind in the UK, it asked the opinions of just under 2,000 girls and young women aged 7 to 21 (not just members of Girlguiding). As it gives us an insight about how girls feel about a range of issues, emerging pressures and what they need to support their happiness, wellbeing and opportunities in life, it’s important that we listen to their voices.
