The Management Committee has appointed Bridie Sheeran as the Volunteer Liaison Officer.
The purpose of the role is to provide a communication point for station members, in order to bring to the attention of the chairperson and manager at a monthly meeting any particular strengths and weaknesses identified by members, their ideas for improvement and issues in connection to the operations of the station. It is not supposed to replace the day-to-day link with members by staff or management but act as a conduit for better communications between members and management.
The position is a formal channel of communication between the members and management and as such will only review issues formally raised on the approved issue registration form. The Chair and Manager will review the issues raised with the Member Liaison Officer and a formal written decision will be recorded and made available to the initiating member. In cases of policy or other governance issues the Liaison team may refer the issue to the appropriate committee or board meeting.
