Could you lead a group of passionate local women?

We are a small community voluntary group established in 2010. We are committed to raising awareness of women’s issues, encouraging women from all walks of life, and hosting events/activities to give women the chance to socialise and share with one another (you can find out more about our aims here and our previous events here).

Our current Chair Laura has been part of WAND since 2018, but is planning to step down this year. Laura is from Dorset originally but now lives in Bristol, and would love to see the Chair be taken on by a dedicated woman based more locally. Laura is very keen to stay involved and support WAND’s new leader in their role.

If the answer to all of the above is yes, we’d love to hear from you!

Role of the Chair

The role of WAND’s Chair involves overseeing the leadership of the organisation – we are a small group at present, but we’d love to continue to run our much-loved events and develop new ideas for the future.

Specific responsibilities of the Chair include:

Other roles

If you would like to be involved with WAND but are not interested in the Chair role, we are also looking for general committee members. Key responsibilities for all committee members will include:

If you are interested in the Chair role (or a general committee member role), please send an expression of interest to wanddorset@gmail.com with a few lines about why you are interested in getting involved and any previous experience/skills/knowledge you feel is relevant. We will then have a chat with you over the phone or via Zoom to get to know you and explain WAND in more detail.

The deadline for expressions of interest in the Chair role is 31st October 2021 – this is to give us time to prepare the formalities ahead of the AGM.

AGM – save the date

Please do save the date for the AGM – this is taking place on Wednesday 17th November, 7pm.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
