This role is currently vacant.
All volunteers are covered by the conditions of the Volunteer Policy & Charter.
The Branch Secretary is:
- the administrator for the branch team, working closely with the Branch Coordinator;
- the volunteer coordinator for the branch, ensuring that registration of volunteers is kept up to date.
A successful Branch Secretary assists the Branch Coordinator in knowing what branches are expected to do, planning and organising meetings and in recruiting/retaining and supporting volunteers. Being the Branch Secretary may be hard work and challenging at times, but always interesting and worthwhile.
There will be times of the year when more hours will be required, e.g. when preparing for team meetings and in the run up to the AMM. 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.
