  • We are looking for new members with finance, systems, leadership skills and energy!

Honorary Treasurer

  • This post sits outside of the committee, and is open to current or retired finance professionals, or people with sound financial experience, looking for an opportunity to do some voluntary work. The main role would be to have a consistent person who stays as committee members come and go, and to offer support as needed to the finance officer. There is no requirement to attend committee meetings.

  • Please contact Ruth Nightingale on Finances@ukagp.org.uk for more information.
