The Norfolk branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) are looking for a new honorary secretary following the retirement of the previous incumbent of the role after 10 years service.
Key duties of the role include taking minutes for the charity’s quarterly Trustee meetings, ensuring the correct administration of their annual general meeting and advising staff and Trustees on procedural matters, statutory reporting and charity governance.
James Parry, chairman of CPRE Norfolk, said; “We are looking for someone who enjoys the countryside and would like to join the Trustees and a network of people working to protect and promote the distinct qualities of rural Norfolk.
“We are looking for an individual with experience, and preferably with qualifications, who can administrate meetings and advise staff and Trustees on procedural matters. That said, we are looking for someone with a light touch and a sense of humour who can ensure that the charity fulfils its constitutional requirements without over-complicating things unnecessarily. I would be delighted to hear from any interested persons.”
All expenses can be paid, further details are available from the CPRE Norfolk website www.cprenorfolk.org.uk/volunteering/office or from chairman James Parry on 01366 328676.
