Volunteer Roles - Communications
This sub-committee is responsible for delivering UGFC’s communications strategy, and is therefore active throughout the entire year. It is important to have a dedicated group of volunteers who work within in this group to achieve UGFC’s aims of financial sustainability, spreading educational/ campaigning messages and to ensure we work smoothly as an organisation.
Being a part of this group will give you the opportunity to develop and expand your communications skills. It requires volunteers to be creative and pro-active, and can give you an insight of both internal and external communications strategies within an organisation.
Each group should work autonomously while having regular meetings of all groups to get feedback on your given area. During these group meetings we would require that the roles of Chairperson & Secretary rotate members. We find this encourages everyone to get involved and while benefiting from the responsibility of the temporary role.
If you are interested in any of the following roles, contact us with the form at the bottom of the page.
