I'm one of two Deputy Chief Commissioners for LaSER who work to support our Chief Commissioner. My main areas of responsibility are Learning & Development and Marketing & Communications, working closely with the Chairs, Lead Volunteers and their teams. The rest of my role is varied and very much whatever the Chief Commissioner delegates to me. This includes attending events across the region such as AGM's, Jack Petchey Award evenings and Trefoil Guild events, as well as representing the Chief Commissioner at meetings or telephone conferences that she is unable to attend. I also work closely with the staff team and am involved in finance, including the annual audit, while we are without a Treasurer. As well as this, I am the Chair of the Region Operations group.
The role is a 5-year term; for the first half I am a Trustee, and will then hand over to my co-Deputy Lesley for the final term of office.
