Chairman

The Georgian Group is the National Amenity Society for the period 1700 to 1840 and as such has a statutory role in the planning process in England and Wales.  The group’s twin aims are to protect the nation’s Georgian heritage, through its casework and campaigns, and to foster public interest in it through its educational activities.

We are seeking a successor to our Chairman, Christopher Boyle QC, who intends to step down at the next AGM, on 25th June 2020.   

The successful candidate, who will work closely with other members of the group’s Executive Committee and its Secretary, should:

  • be an effective chairman
  • have an informed and enthusiastic interest in Georgian architecture
  • have experience of setting strategic direction
  • have a good understanding of the non-government and charitable sector
  • be able to champion the group’s values and point of view
  • be able to champion the development of the group’s profile, membership and fundraising

The average time-commitment for this voluntary post is approximately three days a month. The appointment is for a term of three years, potentially renewable for a further two terms.

If you are interested, please email the group’s Treasurer Josslyn Gore-Booth at josslyn@gore-booth.co.uk by the end of January 2020, briefly explaining why you are interested and enclosing a CV. All approaches will be treated in confidence. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to meet the Nominations Committee in March 2020.
