Call for Events Organisers
The UK’s largest fashion history network is looking for Events Organisers to join its Programming Committee.  These are voluntary positions and unpaid, but not without their own rewards.

Brief Job Description/Outline
The committee meets three times a year and with the support of other committee members, you will help to shape the society’s programme by coming up with ideas, thinking of new ways in which we can attract and engage with members’ different interests and encourage new members to join the society though its events programme.  You will be required to take the lead in organising at least two events a year with the support of other committee members and planning guidelines.  Tasks will vary depending on the nature of the event but might include finding venues, speakers, or interesting places for behind-the- scenes tours.  You will also need to chair the meetings from time to time.

Please send your CV and a short statement about any relevant experience you’ve had in programming and planning events, talks and social gatherings. Email
