Your Central England Branch Needs You!!
20 February 2012
We have got to that time that happens every two years where we need new committee members to help our branch continue and grow.
Now in case you didn't already know the Central England branch is your social and networking club for professional performers and creatives based in the Midlands region. A place to come for help, advice, friendship, support and fun. And it's not just for actors!!
Like all the Equity branches in the UK, the Central England branch is run by a committee of nine Equity professional performers and creatives who were elected by their fellow branch members. They are not employed by Equity, but give up a few hours a month to help give Equity members based in the Midlands a powerful voice by organise campaigns and regional events.
The present Branch Committee ends its term of office at the Branch AGM on the 12 March. We have not had a full complement of nine committee members for many months, so volunteers are urgently needed to make our branch viable. Without Members who are willing to volunteer to serve on the Equity Central England Branch Committee. Your Branch Will Fold!! Please remember that this is your branch, and it can only continue with your participation.
Serving on the Committee can be great fun and puts you right at the centre of Branch networking. It need not take up much of your time providing there’s a full team to share the work. We need a team of nine, pleasant enthusiastic, proactive Equity members based in the Midlands region. All committee members can reclaim their travel expenses for attending committee meetings, so it won't cost you a penny and you can help make a real difference to the lives of Equity members in the Midlands region.
Members may nominate themselves but must have a seconder who is also an Equity Branch Member. If you’re not in touch with another member who might second you, get in touch with the present Committee and we’ll see what we can do to help.
