Our current Convener is due to stand down from the end of this academic session having served three years in post. The Convener role will then be filled by the current Vice Convener as per our Terms of Reference.
Members are now asked to consider standing for the post of Vice Convenor of SHED which will become vacant at the end of this academic session. Our terms of reference state that the role of the Vice Convenor is, over a two year period, to:
1.1 The role of the Vice Convener includes:
a) Supporting the Convener in their duties and acting as deputy where appropriate at SHED Meetings and on external bodies.
There would be an expectation that the Vice Convener would thereafter take on the role of the Convener.
1.2 The role of the Convener includes:
a) Promoting and supporting an open and inclusive community across the SHED Network
b) Liaising with, and representing SHED with external agencies
c) Organising, in conjunction with the Executive, agendas and meeting papers
d) Chairing SHED meetings
We would welcome self nomination from any member of our SHED community (ie you do not have to be an institutional member to stand). Expressions of interest should be sent to our Secretary Janis Davidson by 22 May 2017 (Janis.Davidson@gla.ac.uk). This will allow us to put a voting process into operation and have final selection of the new Vice Convenor before the end of this academic session.
We would encourage you to consider this CPD opportunity and get involved in further developing our Community of Practice and extending our activities.
