Four coloured chairs in empty space

As the creative industries and SoA members continue to feel the impact of the health crisis, an unstable economy, an uncertain situation in Europe — in addition to the usual challenges facing creative freelancers — do you have the time, skills and experience to help lead your union through the next few years?

Nominations for the 2022 Management Committee elections opened this month. With four seats available, this is your opportunity to influence the SoA’s strategic direction.

What does it involve? Why should you consider it? What life or professional experience could you bring that members will most benefit from?

In this live online panel event, you’ll hear from Management Committee Chair Joanne Harris and former Management Committee member Woodrow Phoenix about what inspired them stand for election, what they achieved in post and why they would encourage you to do so. They will be joined by our Management Committee Elections Coordinator, Catherine Fuller.

Programme

  • Welcome, housekeeping and introductions by Catherine Fuller (5 mins)
  • Panel discussion with Joanne Harris (MC Chair), Woodrow Phoenix (ex-MC) (25 mins)
  • Questions from the audience (10 mins)
  • Summary and closing comments from Catherine Fuller (5 mins)
