Road Safety GB is seeking a new honorary secretary to take up post in March 2010, following Alan Fisher’s resignation for personal reasons.
Alan Kennedy, Road Safety GB chair, says: "Alan (Fisher) has served Road Safety GB very well for the last six years. His resignation has been accepted, with regret, by the Policy and Management Committee and the post of secretary will become vacant on 11 March 2010.
"These are exciting times for Road Safety GB and the right person will undoubtedly enjoy the role of secretary."
Road Safety GB officers are normally elected at an Annual General Meeting, but the next AGM is not until 16 November 2010. It is therefore necessary to appoint a secretary to serve from 12 March to 16 November 2010. This appointment will then be confirmed at the 2010 AGM.
In addition to serving as a member of the Road Safety GB Officer Group and Policy and Management Committee, the secretary is expected to:
• Contribute to the review, revision and updating of current policies and working practices which will include consultations with the wider membership as well as exploring relationships with other partners and stakeholders;
• Co-ordinate responses to consultations with DfT, DSA and other partners and stakeholders;
• Coordinate elections for other posts within Road Safety GB;
• Be available, if required, to represent Road Safety GB at meetings with DfT, DSA and other partners and stakeholders.
