Roles of Committee members of VASGBI

  • Attend a minimum of 2/3rds of committee meetings during any three year tenure. This would equate to presence at a minimum of six meetings.
  • Attend all Annual Scientific meetings over three year period. Absence should only be in exceptional circumstances and agreed with the society Chairman.
  • All committee members should play an active role in committee activities. The Chairman, Hon Secretary and Treasurer have specific defined roles, as do the subcommittee chairs.  However, other duties (including responses to requests from outside the Society) which may fall outside the remit of these roles require consideration. It is a reasonable expectation that the workload from these additional duties generated on behalf of the VASGBI should be distributed evenly amongst the rest of the committee.
  • For further work “above and beyond” expected duties, other committee members should be prepared to assist as required. Such work should be agreed openly at committee meetings.
All work undertaken on behalf of the committee is non-remunerated; however certain expenses as agreed can be claimed.
