    Personally I'd be more suited to Communication - emails and phone calls, given the similar sort of experience I have had over the last 8 years.

    Secretary
    Treasurer

    Are skill sets I've no experience of at all, given that I've been a Full Time Carer for the last 14 years, and before that, never worked in a Office role.

    I've no sort of knowledge needed for the Webmaster

    Land owner database is something I'd need more information about what is involved in the background, to give a informed comment.

    Thanks for asking.

    With my professional skills in web design, hosting and marketing I would say that communications and webmaster are so interlinked that I would be best suited to those roles.

    But I recognise the importance of working with the person who wrote the code of this website so would look to keep a contact there too if I was to work in these roles.

    The actuall programming is outside my skill base as its programming not web design.

    As a company director I also have skills that would cover all but the job of treasurer which I tend to steer clear of.

    Regards

    I personally think I'd be best at the role of the Secretary or maintaining the Land Owner Database. I have quite a bit of free time during the day to dedicate to either of these two roles.

    I'm not very familiar with accounts or any form of webmastery so these would be a no!

    I have been in charge of the land owner database since March and I'm still willing to continue in that role. I am currently a treasurer with our local scout group and I have designed Web sites in the past including writing and designing in html, php and java script. I have been in a secretarial role before but my strengths are elsewhere. So I am flexible and I can help in several different roles within the GAGB.

    GAGB Committee member since March 2014
    UK Mega Event Vice Chairman 2013 (West Midlands)

    I believe I could fulfill any of the roles bar webmaster but I feel there should be consistency in the treasurer role I currently hold so I guess I would be looking to hold on to that should I be re-elected. Having said that, many of us have done bits of all sorts to cover others which has worked ok.

    I'll have a go at most jobs, and will happily fit in where Im needed.

    For the last year I've been processing membership applications, a role I never thought I was 'technical' enough for, but I've taken to it well. Every day (well almost every day, if I'm away then it depends on t'internet) I weed the spammers out and add the cachers.

    So if I can learn that from nothing I hope I can sort out anything that needs looking after.

    I'd also like to keep looking after Scotland and increasing the GAGB merchandising (such as polos and the coins).

    I feel a mix of communications and events / training would be the best use of my skills.

    With many years of customer service and marketing for volunteer groups I would like to get involved with raising profile of gagb and caching.

    I hope to forge links within the outdoor industry to do this.
