  Committee Vacancy: Chair of the Library & Information History Group

The Library & Information History Group is seeking a new Chair to lead the group starting January 2018. The Chair is the lead officer for the Group and is responsible for coordinating activities, ensuring that the core offer and annual priorities, as set out in the group’s business plan, are met and acting as key spokesperson for the Group. In practice this means: leading the committee meetings, liaising with CILIP, preparing the annual report and business plan and helping to promote the interests of the group and its members. The Group holds four committee meetings per year: two in-person and two online, via email. The Chair is expected to attend and participate in all four meetings.   

This is an excellent opportunity to gain management and leadership skills and to promote the history of libraries and information. The committee is proactive and enthusiastic and the Group regularly organises visits, talks and events that attract a wide and diverse audience.   

Please note that this is a volunteer role and is not a paid position. The candidate must be a member of CILIP or willing to join in January 2018. Reasonable travel expenses to attend committee meetings and events are reimbursed.   

For further information about the role please contact the current Chair, Renae Satterley by 15 November 2017: or 020 7427 4830.
