The NCAFC National Committee are looking to fill the two remaining seats on the NCAFC Secretariat.
The Secretariat are elected by the NC and exist to both facilitate the work of the NC and run NCAFC’s democratic events. This means that they organise NCAFC Conference, act as returning officers, and support the NC through the administration of meetings. The Secretariat sit on the NC but don’t have a vote. They are allowed to be full political agents in meetings and in public (as long as they’re not chairing).
Holding the position is a significant time commitment and comes with very little authority. Think Bob Cratchit from A Christmas Carol. Most of the role is communicating with different individuals and staring at word documents for hours on end putting text in the right place.
What it would be useful to have:
- A working understanding of NCAFC’s democratic structures
- A strong understanding of NCAFC’s debate procedures
- Strong organisational skills
- Free time
- Experience of having sat on boards or committees (excluding society and sports club committees)
You must be a member of NCAFC but can not currently hold a position on the NC.
If you’re interested in running please email [email protected] with at most a 200 word statement, by Sunday the 21st at 6pm, on why you’d be good for the job and a ballot of the NC will be conducted online.
You can also email [email protected] with any questions about the role.
