SPMA seeks two Ordinary Members for Council

Friday 4 July 2014

There are currently two vacancies for Ordinary Members (3-year term) on the SPMA Council to start in December 2014. Council Members must also be members of the SPMA, and generally we are keen to maintain a strong balance on Council between different sectors in the discipline (e.g. academics, museum professionals, heritage organisations, commercial archaeologists etc) and interest groups.

SPMA Council carries out much of its business during quarterly Council meetings.  As the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology is a registered charity, the Members of Council are its trustees; they ensure that the charity is running well and does what it was set up to do. You can find out more about being a charity trustee on the Charity Commission website

Interested in standing for election? In order to consider potential applicants, we would like you to provide a brief summary of your qualifications/professional background and experience, and what you feel you could bring to a Council role - a paragraph will suffice. Please return this statement to the SPMA’s Secretary at at your earliest convenience, and ideally by the end of September. All of the candidates will be considered by Council at our October Council meeting, and we will make a recommendation of our preferred candidates to the AGM at the Society of Antiquaries on 15th December. Of course, any SPMA member can also put themsleves up for election at the AGM, by submitting a nomination to the Secretary 21 days in advance of the meeting.
