Position Vacant – Assistant Secretary

To all U3A Manningham Members

All COM members are putting in place nominated ‘Assistants’ to ensure continuity and back up in circumstances when a COM member is temporarily unavailable. Accordingly, we are seeking a member to become Assistant Secretary.

Initially, the aim would be to become familiar with the day-to-day role of the Secretary so that they could stand in if the Secretary were unavailable through illness or out of Melbourne for family reasons. Standing in for the secretary would mainly involve attending COM meetings, taking, writing up and distributing the minutes and drawing up the agenda for these meetings. (Other members of the Executive would always be available to advise and assist with these tasks as needed.)

Ideally, we are looking for a person with experience in administrative matters, with reasonable computer skills, who would enjoy this involvement in a vibrant organisation. You might have previously worked in an administrative role, or perhaps been secretary of a community organisation, or perhaps you are an organised person who would enjoy such a role.

It is anticipated that, initially at least, following some observation and discussion about how the Committee of Management works, involvement would be on an ‘as needs’ basis.

If you would be interested in such an involvement in your U3A, please contact me at .
