Honorary Officers

Honorary officers generally include a Chairperson, Secretary and a Treasurer. Some organisations have additional honorary officers. These may include Vice-Chair, Vice Secretary, Press Officer and so forth. The organisation's constitution should indicate how honorary officers are to be elected or selected. It is important to check your governing document for details and ensure these terms are adhered to.

The roles of honorary officers need to be clearly set out in a written role description before new officers are elected.  Delegating to Honorary Officers also needs to be overseen and monitored by the committee as a whole.
