LMG seeks Chair, Treasurer, and committee members

The London Museums Group committee is seeking five new members to join its committee at this year’s Annual General Meeting.  There are five posts vacant at present – Chair, Treasurer, and three ordinary committee member posts.  This is your opportunity to join the LMG committee and have key role in how the organisation develops and supports the London museums workforce.

We welcome applications from everyone working in or for the museums sector in London.  We are particularly keen on having a museum volunteer presence on the board, and a board that truly represents London’s rich diversity or people and cultures.

Chair – The chair is responsible for chairing meetings of the committee, and the strategic direction and overall leadership of the committee and LMG.  You will liaise with key stakeholders, including London Museum Development, the Mayor of London’s cultural office, Arts Council England, and DCMS; as well as represent the organisation within London’s museum  and cultural heritage sector.

Treasurer – The Treasurer is responsible for all duties concerning monies of LMG.  We are a small charity and our current turnover is less than £10,000 per annum, so are not required to be registered with Charity Commission.  This role would be suitable for someone with experience of budgets/accounts and/or wishing to gain experience of the financial elements of charity management.

3 x Ordinary committee members – you will be part of the LMG committee, helping to steer the organisation, support and inform it strategic direction, and its operational activities that will support London museums, their workforce and volunteers.  Ordinary committee members bring their knowledge, experience, and expertise the organisation, and can take on responsibilities for membership, fundraising, communications, and social media.  Ordinary committee members may lead, or be part of, sub-committees, for instance our Events sub-committee.

Deadlines: Applications are open until 9pm on Wednesday 14th March.  Voting will take place at the Annual General Meeting on Thursday 22nd March 2018.  Please return your application form to recruitment@londonmuseumsgroup.org
