The Programme Secretary

Our Programme Secretary, Chris Pendred, is standing down after three years in the post, and the Society is looking to appoint a succesor to begin work as soon as possible on preparing talks for the 2022-23 season.

Any member who is interested in taking on the role is invited to contact the chairman, Peter Jarvis, to discuss what it involves. A new Programme Secretary will receive support and guidance from other members of the committee.
