This role is currently held by all of the current volunteers collectively.
The branch coordinator must be an NCT member. All volunteers are covered by the conditions of the Volunteer Policy & Charter. All roles can be shared.
The Branch Coordinator is:
- the leader of the branch team;
- the main communication link with the regional team and UK office;
- an advocate for the NCT in the local community.
The role could expand to fill every spare moment – don’t let this happen! There will be times of the year when more hours will be required, e.g. in the run up to the Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM) and in teambuilding when new volunteers come forward. The NCT Volunteer & Member Profile 2008 showed that 47% of volunteers spent up to 2 hours in a typical week and a further 42% spent 2 to 8 hours on their volunteering.
