  • Branch Chair - The Chair is responsible for the overall activities of the branch. At the branch AGM they shall present a report on the year’s activities specifying the number of events that have been held, which should be sent to the STEP head office within 14 days of the AGM.
  • Branch Secretary - The Secretary is responsible for the formal aspects of branch administration, including calling meetings, taking or arranging for minutes of meetings, and handling statutory matters as required (such as government filings). Minutes of branch meetings should be sent on request to the STEP head office so they can be reviewed for items of significance to the worldwide organisation.
  • Branch Treasurer - The Treasurer is responsible for accounting for the branch’s activities, banking matters, which will include bank deposits, approving expenses, and writing cheques, and other financial matters (such as cash flow projections and budgets).
  • Programmes Secretary - The Programmes Secretary is normally responsible for all aspects of a branch’s events programme, including the design of a programme itself, arranging speakers, venue, hand-out materials, etc., and other related logistics. While tasks can and should be delegated and shared, experience has shown that one person must ultimately be responsible. Where a branch doesn't have a dedicated SIG Officer, the Programmes Secretary should take responsibility for ensuring that the events programme includes specialist content in line with STEP's Special Interest Group topic areas. Event programmes should also seek to address STEP’s areas of focus for its thought leadership profile-raising work.
  • Communications Officer - The Communications officer is responsible for the branded branch communications, including running the branch LinkedIn profile and newsletters and overseeing the branch e-mail account.
  • Committee Member - The Committee is always keen to welcome Full, Associate and Affiliate Branch members to join the Committee in a non-exec role and to contribute to the successful operation of the Branch and so please also get in touch if you are interested in getting involved in this way.
