    Default Committee Roles

    I would like to know which role within the Committee do you feel most able to volunteer to undertake?

    I will start this off as I feel one of my strengths is Communication and so I would wish to continue with answering all general queries / phone calls to the GAGB, yet leaving specific questions about Landowner Agreements to whoever is taking overall charge of that section of the GAGB work.

    It would help those of us invited to stand for election for the first time if we knew what the particular roles were and the responsibilities that come with each

    I have asked the question before but was told this was usually all sorted out after the election.

    Extracted from Seeker (issue 10):

    What’s involved in joining the committee?

    There are a number of positions that need filling by the members of the committee so it is important that there is a selection of skill sets available from those that stand to fill the following roles:

    • Chairman
    • Treasurer
    • Secretary
    • Webmaster
    • GLAD management
    • Editor & Contributors to Seeker magazine
    • Answering telephone enquiries (often from landowners that have discovered caches on their land that haven’t got permission)
    • Dealing with email enquiries (enquiries from geocachers and the public including media and police forces)

    You will also need to be available to:
    - Attend regular (online) committee meetings
    - Participate in committee and general forum discussions
    - Help with promotion of the GAGB – e.g. stand at Mega events
    GAGB member since 2005
    GAGB Committee member 2010 to 2016 (Chair 2012 to 2015)
    UK Mega Event Chairman 2009 (Weston-super-Mare)

    I would be happy to take on GLAD mangement and be happy to work on it with someone else if it was too onerous for one person. In saying that I'm not precluding consideration of other roles.

    Talking

    In case anyone is wondering, Mollyjak and I are not sitting next to each other, though we appear to be on the same wavelength!

    I was unaware of her question when I effectively answered it just a minute later. For the reasons given in the other post I think I would like to be our Secretary if I am elected.

    I did wonder if you had received the email regarding the question and posted in the wrong thread ( that's what I would do LOL)

    I deliberately did not state the responsibilities as I wanted to see what would be suggested.

    I'd still like to know more about the responsibilities which go along with each role.

    I suggest you choose a role and put your stamp on it - a role is what you make of it. I'd rather be on a committee where members are doing whatever enables them to be most effective rather than being round pegs pushed into square holes of rigid definition. If what you would like isn't on the list, invent it and describe it: you might just prompt someone else to wish they'd thought of it.

    Given the thread about reprimanding committee members who act without mandate, and my comparative lack of knowledge about how things run generally within the GAGB - I'd much rather receive some further guidance on scope than end up on the naughty step at some point in the future

    I'm more than happy to continue editing Seeker, but equally happy to surrender to someone else with more skill than me. There are really two aspects: one is producing and generating editorial content; the other is design. They don't have to be in the hands of the same person, although it helps.

    The design element does not require the designer to be a member of Committee - anyone with Adobe skills and software can do it. But I do feel that the editor needs to be on the inside, rather than to be fed information from the Committee, out of the loop.
    Isn't it amazing what you don't see, when you don't know what you're looking for?
    The past is history; the future is a story yet to be told; write it well.

    I will answer about one of the rolls for you all.
    Treasurer:
    Taking care of the PayPal and Bank account, maintaining accounts and publishing them as stated in the constitution.
    Making any payments either by PayPal or cheque/bank transfer as decreed by the committee
    Receiving emails prom PayPal for payments and donations received. Updating the forum Donations bar.

    There is also the need for somebody to take on the responsibility of new membership applications, at the moment they are set so as an Admin person has to to say yes/no, this is to vastly reduce the amount of 'spam' members that were joining. Maybe 2 people could share this again in the way that I and Palujia did.
