As you are aware, Maureen Weston has been appointed as our Diocesan President for the next Triennium and takes office on 1st January 2019. She needs a full team to work with and there are several vacancies on the Trustee Board; people who can help build on the strong foundations which have been laid over the last three years under Alison Bennett; people who can energize the body of the Mothers’ Union in this Diocese.
Please prayerfully consider whether you yourself could offer to take responsibility for one of our vacant posts or whether someone in your branch or a Diocesan member known to you would be ideally suited.
Positions for which nominations are being sought:
Area Vice-Presidents for…
- West Berks
- Central Bucks
Nominations for these positions must come from members living in the same part of the Diocese
Unit Co-ordinators for…
- Faith and Policy
- Action and Outreach
- Fundraising and Communications
To serve as a Trustee for our charity, someone must be:
- at least 18 years of age
- a Subscribing Member of the Mothers’ Union, resident in the Diocese
- in sympathy with the aim & objects of the Mothers’ Union, with an understanding of the Diocesan MU
- able and willing to stand for election
- and, of course, able and willing to do the job
Generally, Trustees serve for 3 years. In 2019 we will be looking at our constitution. There may be some re-structuring within the Board, so some positions may be for a shorter period.
If you would like to suggest a name for any of these positions (or for more than one), please complete a nomination form, or write a letter containing the information required, and send it to me by post or email:
