Committee News

There is a Vacancy on the Branch Committee for a Branch Secretary

Our Branch Secretary will be retiring after our AGM on 7th March 2015 due to outside work commitments, and we are looking for someone to take on this key volunteer role.

You don't need to be an experienced committee secretary or to have an expert knowledge of butterflies or moths. The main remit of the role on paper is supporting meetings, including the agenda and taking minutes, and acting as a key contact point with other parties, including Butterfly Conservation Head Office. In practice, you will find yourself involved with a friendly, enthusiastic group of people with many opportunities to contribute to and influence the conservation of butterflies and moths across Cornwall. The Branch is heading for an exciting time, with one practical partnership project already underway, and others being taken forward.

The Branch Committee currently has 12 members, with a wide variety of skills and expertise. Formal meetings are held 3 to 4 times a year, with an AGM in March. The Branch needs your help! – join the committee and put your skills into a role that will genuinely benefit wildlife in Cornwall.   

If this is possibly of interest to you and you'd like to find out more, please contact either the retiring Secretary, Amanda Scott at ascott9618@gmail.com, or the Branch Chair, Philip Hambly at philip@lethytep.co.uk.
