If you’re looking to fill a role in your branch, festival or committee drop us a line to wb.editor@camra.org.uk detailing the duties and the kind of person who would be suitable.

Kent region

KENT REGION:  The Regional Committee currently has these positions to fill.  If you want to forward a name, please contact rd.kent@camra.org.uk or at the next advertised Regional Meeting.

Regional Director: our long-standing RD ends her term in March 2019.  Candidates are now being sought for this comprehensive role, covering oversight of activities such as the regional festival, scrutiny and approval of requests from client branches in the region and of their finances, liaison with CAMRA (national) Branches Committee and with the Region’s branches at bi-monthly meetings, usually as Chair, and at Branch AGMs, and to manage appointments of other senior Regional Committee roles to ensure all branches act in accordance with policy and are represented “up the chain” to the Branches Committee and NE. As such it requires a candidate happy to travel across Kent and communicate in diverse fields (and pubs).  This is also a senior role in coordinating the Region’s Good Beer Guide allocations.

Regional Secretary: we are also looking for candidates for this key post supporting the RD for sundry administrative functions. The Secretary collates the reporting to the Regional Meeting across a range of topics including breweries, branch local news about pubs, meeting schedules, etc.

Regional Finance Officer: a Finance Officer is sought to assist (by agreement as to demarcation of responsibilities with the RD), in interpreting and communicating CAMRA’s financial policies and practices to Branch and Beer Festival Treasurers, determining what level of approval is due for funds requests from them, receiving completed end-of-year statements and accounts, returning surpluses to HQ and monitoring Branches’ good financial practice. This role is effectively a deputy to the Directors and will involve communication with the Finance & General Purposes Committee.

Regional Treasurer: a Treasurer is also being sought to manage the Region’s own account, in conjunction with the officers above.
