Opportunities

We are always keen to hear from members who would like to get involved in helping the Society. Whether you bring a specialist skill or just enthusiasm, please do get in touch as we would be pleased to hear from you.

Current Vacancy: LAHS Lecture Secretary

We are looking for someone to help organise the monthly lectures from initial contact with prospective speakers, to organisation at the time of the presentation. The lecture secretary will need to liaise with the venue where the event is being held to book the event (which has historically been Leicester Museum and Art Gallery on New Walk) and make arrangements for refreshments with the museum staff, and also liaise with membership secretary to help ensure that events are publicised as widely as possible. The lecture secretary will need to put speakers and our treasurer in touch so that speakers can be paid.

Some technical ability would be useful to help speakers load up their presentations onto the lecturn laptop, and, as we intend to record lectures where possible, some understanding of cloud recording would be helpful.

Other members of the Committee will assist with the delivery of lectures, and you will be part of a wider team.

Our 2023/24 lectures can be found here:

As lecture secretary you would be part of the society's management committee - we have 5 committee meetings a year, held in person and also online every 2 months from September to May.

If you are interested in helping the LAHS with this very important aspect of our work, please contact Matt Beamish on chair@lahs.org.uk
