Volunteering Opportunity: Heritage Railway Association

Secretary, Heritage Committee 

As the result of a sudden vacancy arising, the HRA Heritage Committee is seeking applications for the role of Committee Secretary.

This is a volunteer role with no remuneration. Travel and subsistence costs (and any other appropriate outlays) can be reimbursed under the terms of the current HRA Expenses Guidelines. No specific hours of duty but the successful applicant will have sufficient time to undertake the role. Meetings are held four times a year at the NRM, York, generally on weekday afternoons (the next meeting being scheduled for 19th September 2017).

Core tasks will include taking and circulating the Minutes of meetings, for which at least some previous experience would be helpful. An interest in railways or industrial heritage would be an advantage. You should be computer literate and have good communicating skills. The Secretary is responsible to the committee Chairman for organising meetings, including liaising with the host venue, drafting agendas and circulation of other related documents.

In addition to the core tasks, you would be welcome, if you wish, to assist with other elements of the Committee’s work, specific tasks being shared out amongst Committee members.

Please reply in the first instance to: Sam Bee (Committee Chairman) at sam.bee@hra.uk.com, with C.V. and any further detail which you think might be relevant.

Expressions of interest would be appreciated by 4th August.
