The duties of the honorary officers of the resident-led partnership, Big Local North East Hastings, are described below.
The Chair is elected at the annual general meeting and is also Chair of the North East Hastings Big Local Group. The resident-led partnership appoints the other officers. Please note that the roles of treasurer and secretary are currenly vacant. Please contact our Community Development work if you are interested in joining the partnership and filling one of these roles.
* these tasks could be carried out by staff employed by Orbit, the resident-led partnership’s Locally Trusted Organisation in which case the secretary will be responsible for ensuring that the necessary procedures are in place and that the tasks are being carried out successfully.
Unlike treasurers in most community groups, the treasurer for Big Local North East Hastings does not keep the accounts because that is the responsibility of Orbit (our Locally Trusted Organisation). However, the resident-led partnership is investigating having an account for petty cash and if this happens the treasurer will be responsible for that account.
In addition to support from paid workers, training will be provided when needed for residents who are elected as honorary officers or who would like to stand for election in the future.
