Will you help your Society? Join the Committee

Give your Society a future by lending a hand as a Committee Member

If you’d like to do more for your Society, why not think about joining the Committee of the Romany and Traveller Family History Society? We currently have 11 people on the Committee and to make things work well we need a full complement of 12. And by joining, you will bring to the Committee fresh thinking, different skills and new energy to make your Society better than ever.

To become one of our Committee members, you first need to be an RTFHS member – and then there are a variety of things you could help us with. Here are a couple of ideas:

Be an Events Co-ordinator – and help us find and book venues for our Society Days, liaise with potential speakers/performers and local media and check  everyone involved knows what they need to do or bring on the day.

Be a Project Co-ordinator – and help to plan and organise things like typing up parish register finds to add to our website and double-checking indexes.

How and where does the Committee work? 

The RTFHS Committee meets three times a year, in March, June and November. At the moment our meeting place is Hook, Hampshire.

The meetings run from about 10am until 3.30pm with lunch in the middle. You’ll find them friendly and sociable get-togethers. Travel expenses are paid and lunch is provided too.

You’ll also need to be willing to come along and lend a hand at our Society Days that are held once a year in May or June.

Sounds like something you could do?

For more information or to volunteer to join the RTFHS Committee, please contact the RTFHS Secretary: enquiries[at]rtfhs.org.uk
