Centenary Exhibition: sponsorship working group
Do you have any experience of getting sponsorship or grants? We are forming a very small working group with the aim of obtaining some financial support for our Centenary Exhibition in 2021 and are looking for people who have experience in this or who are simply interested in helping with this activity. If you feel you could help, please send a brief message giving any relevant details to Alma Swan, Honorary Secretary, at email@example.com
Editorial Board Chair
Would you like to help shape the public face of the SSI? Our website and Facebook page are accessible to people all over the world, with the potential to encourage new memberships which are essential to the long term future of the Society. Our member publications – the newsletter and The Scribe journal – are the main ways in which members receive news and information, and are especially important benefits of membership for those who are unable to travel to SSI events.
The Editorial Board Chair oversees and co-ordinates the work of the Editorial Board, consisting of Social Media Officer, Webmaster, Scribe Editor, Scribe Designer, Newsletter Editor and Newsletter Designer. It also involves close working with the SSI Officers to ensure messages and information are shared with the membership at appropriate times and in the best possible way. It is a rewarding post, and would suit a member with:
- A good eye for detail and design
- Good connections with other calligraphers and relevant societies/organisations
- The ability to attend Executive Committee meetings and other SSI events as well as calligraphic exhibitions and events (for inspiration and news).
- Good judgement, coming from plenty of calligraphic experience.
- The ability to provide a quick turn-around on proofreading
- The ability to ensure our publications are relevant and up-to-date, whilst furthering the aims of the SSI and upholding our standards.
Capital Letters 2020 Volunteer
Capital Letters is the new name for Lay Members’ Day. We are looking for a volunteer to join the Capital Letters team to assist with the organisation, preparation and running of the event which will take place on 16th May 2020 at Kings College in The Strand. We are a small, friendly team who would welcome someone who could assist with the planning of the structure of the day, to undertake some of the practical considerations leading up to the event and, most importantly, be prepared to help on the day itself. No special qualifications required; just enthusiasm and ideas. Interested? Need more information? Contact Steve Eades at firstname.lastname@example.org
