Members of BIG are invited to stand for a position on the 2016/17 Executive Committee.
ANY member can apply for ANY position on the Committee and no prior experience of Committee or Board work is required. It's always helpful to have a cross-representation of the entire membership on the Committee so we actively encourage applications from freelancers, science festivals, science centres, academic institutions, zoos, museums, funding and research bodies etc.
We are looking to fill all roles but in particular we are looking for a new Chair and a General (Ordinary) Committee member.
We are a friendly bunch, we meet about 4 times a year somewhere central to all committee members (for which your expenses will be covered) and you'll be fully supported in your role by BIG's Administrator. You will receive a cost-only place at the BIG Event 2017. All positions will be subject to an online vote and the results will be revealed at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Belfast on July 21st (you do not need to be present).
To find out more about the positions, email for an informal and confidential chat. Nominations are to be received by 10am on Monday 4th July. Please contact me for a nomination form: firstname.lastname@example.org
