Helping ESAS

ESAS prides itself in being a members orientated society.  It is a society run by its members for its members and all of our members are welcome to assist in helping our Society in achieving its aims and objectives.  There are many tasks, large and small, where you can help ESAS and the amount of time you give is entirely at your discretion.

For those members who have a little more time you might consider joining one of the ESAS committees and take the opportunity to help shape the future of our Society.  Our Executive Committee is elected each year by our members at our AGM.  There is also scope to become a co-opted member of the Executive Committee. 

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Executive Committee you will need to (i) be 18 years of age or over at the time of the election (ii) be a member of ESAS at the time of the election and for the previous twelve months (iii) be not barred from acting as a Director of a company and (iv) download and complete our Nomination Form and return it to the our Secretary, at least four weeks before the next AGM. The Society's governing documents are our constitution and the Charity Commissioners Trustee guidance documents listed below.  Lastest versions of the Trustee documents can be found on the Charity Commissioners website.  The versions below are current at spring 2016. 

(i) The ESAS Constitution

(ii) It is also advisable to read The Essential Trustee: What you need to know. What you need to do  (2015)

If you have any questions about helpng our Society please speak with the Society Secretary, Treasurer or Chairman who can provide you with more information.  Their details can be found here.
