Do you want to join a team of awesome trans activists working for democratic trans healthcare? We are currently opening up nominations for election to our committee!
Our committee is responsible for overseeing the work of Action for Trans Health and will be accountable to the wider membership. Elected committee members will serve for a term of 2 years. Key responsibilities include: determining the goals and direction of the organisation, appointing and managing volunteer roles appropriately and listening to and acting on the wishes and needs of the membership.
Committee members should be willing to spend at least 2 hours most weeks on ATH meetings and work. Although some current members of the committee work 20+ hours per week on Action for Trans Health work, this is not expected of all committee members. Job shares are absolutely welcome. We currently have 5 roles on the committee available:
– Committee Member (reserved for a person of colour)
– Committee Member (reserved for disabled person)
– Committee Member (reserved for a non-binary person)
– Committee Member (reserved for a woman)
– Committee Member (open place)
You can fill in a nomination form here. The election will take place at our AGM on the 22nd Nov 2015, and via an online ballot for members who cannot make it to conference. People standing in the election need to be registered Action for Trans Health members by the 20th Nov in order to qualify. They do not have to attend the AGM in person.
People might also be interested in our volunteer roles, a series of posts available in the organisation, which will be available after the AGM.
