Committee Role Highlights: Supporting Officer
of Supporting Officer is very broad – my main task was to create a sustainable
UKRG Archive. However, my role’s flexibility means I have been able to become
involved with a range of activities at committee level. I assist at Events,
complete administrative tasks on an ad-hoc basis and am also looking into
potential legacy projects for the ERC Edinburgh money.

a presence at events, I have been able to liaise with colleagues from other
museums and agencies and build better working relationships – being able to put
a face to a name is incredibly helpful in a world full of e-mail. As a result
of these networking opportunities I have been able to build relationships both
nationally and internationally. Being on the committee means that your travel
to and from events is covered. This has been a great help to me as I have been
able to attend events I otherwise would not have been able to outside of London
the archive has meant contact with many different colleagues and institutions,
and helped me to gain a better understanding of the different roles within our
sector, as well as the important work that the UKRG has been doing since conception.
Being able to create a sustainable archive has been a fantastic achievement, as
my work will create a lasting record of the important work of the UKRG.
The past 2
years have flown by, and I will always benefit from the relationships, and
knowledge, I have built up with UKRG members and the committee.
