UKAGP Vacancies

Four members of the Organising Committee (OC) will complete their 3 year term this summer, and will therefore be standing down at the Annual General Meeting at Colet House on Sunday June 5th 2016.

The posts they hold are Finance Officer (Ruth Nightingale), Publicity (James Bailey) and two Training Engagement representatives (Dawn Gwilt and Helen Thomas). All four posts are therefore open to the membership to stand for election, and at the same time James, Ruth and Helen will be standing for re-election. Ruth is looking to stay for up to 1 more year, and encourages anyone interested in the post of Finance Officer to stand too in order to have a hand-over period.

Membership of the OC offers engagement with a supportive, creative and dynamic group of gestalt practitioners who are committed to supporting and developing the interests of the gestalt community in the UK and further afield.

We meet three to four times each calendar year, usually on a Saturday, sharing lunch and fun as well as having rich discussions, making decisions and putting into action the day-to-day management of the Association. Please see the UKAGP Constitution for a detailed description of the role of the Committee.

This is your opportunity to join the team! We would love to talk with you if you have an interest. Please contact us at the email addresses that follow the brief role descriptions below for more information:
