MODULE: Committee Actions
Change of Committee
Managing your Committee Role
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.
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.
Delegate tasks from your role description (If society members are happy to help). Remember to check in with them to see these tasks are completed correctly.
You could create some ‘unofficial’ extra roles within the society. Let us know who’s helping out so we can give them access to training.
Talk to us, we are here to help you!
Always be mindful of your wellbeing and find tips on how to manage workloads in the Welfare Module

Talk to the rest of the committee, explain your reasons for stepping down from the role.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or pop in and see us – Explain that you wish to officially step down from the committee role.
