EFCC positions vacant

E-mail Print

EFCC are looking for willing volunteers to take up three vacant positions. First of all, the webmaster position needs someone to give this website some attention and maintain it. Content can be updated by most of the EFCC officers but nobody really has the expertise to be in overall charge and maintain it. Secondly, EFCC are searching for a new secretary to take over from Colin Cheek. This is a position on the EFCC executive committee, which meets twice a year. The secretary is responsible for taking the minutes of these meetings and generally being a point of contact for EFCC matters. Finally, a qualified auditor is needed to audit the EFCC annual financial accounts. If anybody is interested in discussing any of these posts or requires further information, please contact our current secretary, Colin Cheek or Andrew Dearnley.
