Vacancy on Ecclesiological Society Council: Membership Secretary

Our Membership Secretary, Clive Chapman, has indicated that he wishes to step down from the role. I am extremely grateful to Clive for the hard work and efficiency he has brought to the role in recent years, and for his contribution to Council meetings. We are now looking for a volunteer to pick up this important role and continue the work which Clive has managed so well.

The role requires someone who is well organised and can put some time into the role almost every week to stay on top of the work, with a busy period in the first couple of months of the year. You will be the first person that new members have contact with, so you will need to enjoy dealing with people (and occasionally you will need the patience of Job). Administratively, the role includes:

· dealing with email enquiries about membership;
· processing membership applications;
· maintaining the membership database (e.g. changes of address, deaths etc);
· managing members’ subscriptions; and
· reporting to Council and to the Society’s AGM.

You will need to be comfortable with email and Microsoft Word, and able to use and create Excel spreadsheets (we could provide training in Excel for the right person).

You do not need to be expert on churches, but you will be a member of the Society’s Council, which meets in central London four times a year. You will therefore participate in the running of the Society and development of its strategy.

If you think that this role interests you, please do contact me at
