Nominations: LSA Executive Committee

We are getting closer to the AGM, and this year we have a few vacant roles on the LSA Executive Committee which we are seeking to fill.  The Executive is voluntarily run and is responsible for the day-to-day activities of the Association. Members of the Executive contribute to the development of the Association, which includes attending four meetings (inclusive of the AGM) annually.

Nominations are sought for the following positions:

Research and Enterprise Officer

The duties of the Research and Enterprise Officer are to support and encourage research and enterprise that relate to the aims and objectives of the Association. This will be done through the administration of any funding schemes operated by the Association, including the promotion (in conjunction with the Digital Communications Officer) of any such schemes, the allocation of reviewers to any applications to the Association for funding and support, providing feedback to applicants where necessary, liaising with the Treasurer regarding the allocation of successful funding, to ensure all requirements for funding are met by applicants within a reasonable timescale, and to ensure that research expenditure is within the budgets allocated by the Executive Committee of the Association.


Student representative

The student representative is the voice of LSA’s student members. They will, where relevant, survey the views of student members, propose initiatives for student members, and feedback to the Executive Committee.

Ordinary members

Ordinary members of the Executive are responsible for co-ordinating the day-to-day business of the Association. All members of the Executive may be required to take on certain posts, to undertake the duties of those posts, and to report on them to the Executive and to AGMs.
