Committee Members Needed

The Birmingham branch have a lovely, hard working committee who get together four times a year to steer the direction of the branch. Several members have served for a while now, and have chosen to retire, therefore we need some new people to join us.

There are three specific posts that we would like to fill, but if you just want to be a general committee member that's fine too! The vacant posts are:


  • Treasurer - responsible for collecting money from memberships, raffles, fundraisers, etc. and banking it, providing reports to the committee about the branch's finances, paying speakers, hall fees, etc, and maintaining the membership list.
  • Vice Chair - supporting the chair to promote and represent the Guild, chairing committee meetings and hosting branch meetings if the Chair is absent.
  • Programme Secretary - Chairing the Programme Planning working party, booking speakers, providing details of the bookings to the committee, liaising with speakers, producing the programme cards and flyers.
A short job description is available for each role - please email birminghamembroiderersguild@gmail.com if you would like the job description or would like to express your interest in the role.

And finally, thank you to Janet W, Pam and Linda for all the hard work they have put into the committee and the branch over the past few years.
