Managing your Committee Roles

Being a committee member is a great opportunity, however, if at any point you think you are struggling to commit to the role we have some tips that could help with this.

  • Talk to the rest of the committee about how you are feeling, have a face to face meeting. Think about better ways to manage the work load together, the role descriptions should help with this.

  • If society members are happy to help – Delegate tasks from your role description to them.

    Remember, the responsibility to see these tasks are completed correctly and in line with the society training is yours. So manage this and check in with them.

    You could create some ‘unofficial’ roles within the society, to present these opportunities that members can volunteer for.

  • Talk to the Society Team, we are here to help you!

  • Check out the Society Welfare Module to  find tips on how to manage workloads and your Wellbeing.
