Job Description

Role: Local Events Liaison (LEL) volunteer for the Channel Islands.

Purpose of role: To oversee and manage local events for the South West Member Network, and to report back on activities to the Committee at regular meetings (usually held on Zoom).

Responsibilities:

  1. To create an ongoing plan of events in conjunction with other members of the Committee.
  2. To co-ordinate events on behalf of the South West Member Network Committee, including organising venues, speakers, bookings, liaising with customers and host authorities, along with other members of the Events team (other LELs, the Events Co-ordinator, and ad hoc volunteers from the rest of the Committee).
    • The south west region poses challenges in terms of its geography, and the LELs should monitor the distribution of events throughout the year to ensure that as much of the region is covered as possible.
      • This will involve regular liaison with the Events Co. and other LELs.
  3. To encourage members to get involved in organising events and provide support for them.
  4. To provide on-the-day support to make sure everything goes to plan and issues are resolved.
  5. To provide information to the Committee about events, including post-event evaluation.
  6. To maintain a log of past events to feed into the annual report.
  7. To assist the Treasurer by managing events’ finances.
  8. To prepare and distribute event publicity in conjunction with other members of the Committee responsible for marketing and publicity.
  9. To promote the membership and benefits of the South West Member Network and CILIP within the library and information profession.

This post is designed for someone who is a member of CILIP.

The amount of time this role takes up will vary and may be 1-3 hours per week during events. Committee members are expected to be proactive and to participate in committee discussions (usually by email) between meetings and events.
