At our July branch meeting we will be holding elections for three vacant committee posts. Following the resignation of Larry Herman, there are vacancies for branch secretary and for joint treasurer. Also, we are about to lose our membership secretary, Matt Aslett, who will be based in the Middle East from September, and we need a replacement (there is no branch meeting planned for August).
If you are a full branch member and interested in standing for any of these posts, please come to the meeting, or send in a nomination. It really doesn’t matter if you haven’t done anything like this before – you will receive help and support from other committee members. Committee meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month (except August) at 6.00pm at Headland House.
If you have questions about any of the posts, or would like to talk about nominating yourself, please get in touch with me, or with any of the other LPB committee members (contact details on the Committee page of this website).
We will also be voting on any nominations we receive for the casual vacancies on various NUJ Councils.
Philip Wolmuth, LPB Chair
