Michael Wollaston will be standing down as Treasurer and Vice-Chairman of the Society at the forthcoming AGM in October 2017, after serving on the Committee for twenty years. The PRS would like to hear from anyone who might be interested in taking on the role of either Treasurer or the newly created post of Membership Secretary, from November 2017. The main duties of the two posts are described as follows:
Treasurer – the main duties are to maintain the accounting records for the Society; make payments to lecturers, event venues, printers and other suppliers, reimburse committee member expenses, etc.; to receive and bank cheques from miscellaneous parties; produce monthly bank reconciliations; produce bi-monthly accounts for committee meetings plus an annual Treasurer’s Report for presentation at the Annual General Meeting; prepare and submit an annual HM Revenue & Customs Gift Aid claim. The Treasurer would need to attend the five committee meetings plus the Annual General Meeting held in Birmingham each year and will need to be resident in the UK. Expenses such as stationary and postage will be reimbursed.
Membership Secretary – the main duties for this newly created post are to maintain membership records including status spreadsheets and address label files; to monitor the collection of membership subscriptions through the issue of annual renewal and reminder notices; to receive new member applications; to receive and bank cheques from members and to respond to member queries. Ideally the Membership Secretary would be able to attend the five committee meetings plus the Annual General Meeting held in Birmingham each year and will need to be resident in the UK.
