All local institutes outside of London have an Annual General Meeting in the period between March and May, giving you an opportunity to apply to sit on its council in a general capacity or in a dedicated role.
That might be treasurer, secretary, or an officer responsible for education, membership or the organisation of the annual dinner.
You might have experience and skills in careers guidance, or you might fancy a crack at running the sports & social side of things. Or maybe you fancy being exams co-ordinator – why not? It’s challenging and rewarding work.
But, of course, you don’t need to stand for office. You can simply attend the AGM and hear first-hand reports from council members on previous and future activities and vote on the appointment of new council members.
Democracy in action, CII-style!
