Your local branch needs people like you to make a difference

13 Aug 2020

Members from RCN South West Region are invited to express their interest in a role on their branch executive committee. There are many benefits of getting involved.

New committees logo Being part of a branch executive team can be an enriching experience. Branch executive committee members are voted in each year at branch annual general meetings. 

All branch executive committee teams are made up of the following core roles:
  • chair
  • branch secretary
  • treasurer.

If you are interested in any of these roles please read the branch role descriptor document and the other documents in the branches section of the ‘Our Governance Documents’ webpage under the policies and procedures heading.

For a quicker idea of what the different roles entail you can also have a look at this role description poster

Branches can also elect further executive committee members to lead on various topics. In the region we currently have a diverse array of branch executive roles, including:

  • communications officers
  • social media leads
  • student liaison officers
  • nursing support worker leads
  • communication and publicity leads
  • corporate social responsibility leads
  • local learning events leads
  • a president
  • vice-chairs
  • a sustainability officer
  • a wellbeing officer
  • an equality and diversity officer
  • a BAME/ overseas officer
  • independent sector officers
  • nursing associate officers
  • inclusion and diversity officer
  • health and safety leads.

If you are interested in joining your local branch executive committee in any capacity, please fill out a nomination form and get it seconded by a branch member before sending it to the regional office - southwestern.region@rcn.org.uk - by five days before the date of your branch AGM, which you can find here. This will give us plenty of time to check your eligibility and inform the branch of your expression of interest. 

If you would like to discuss any of these roles with your local branch chair, please get in touch with the office (email southwestern.region@rcn.org.uk FAO your branch chair) and we will forward your email to them. Please ensure you state which branch you are referring to.

Members will be elected into committee roles at our branch AGMs, being held online for the first time ever this year starting on 14 October.  

It would be helpful if you could attend your branch's AGM or let us know if you can't.
