Volunteering with the RSCDS

Support the work of the RSCDS

Without our dedicated volunteers, the running of the RSCDS would not be possible. From the Management Board to our Branches who organise classes and dances, we value you all.

Please note that the deadline for nominations was 12 September 2020 and the election results will be announced at the November 2020 virtual AGM.

Management Board

Management Board Trustees work collaboratively to champion the Society, lead the strategic direction and ensure decision making and risk control are of the highest standard. Members can join Board meetings remotely from anywhere in the world!

Committee Members

RSCDS  Management Committees are focused on education, youth and member-driven projects. The Committees are as diverse as the SCD community and  their contributions are essential to the progression of the Society. Members can join meetings remotely from anywhere in the world!

General volunteering

 We sometimes also look for volunteers to help us with specific Working Groups and other Society activities. For example, do you have skills in marketing, law, IT, finance, photography, copy or video editing? If so, please let us know.

Volunteer stories

Hear from some of our many volunteers and be inspired to join the RSCDS community!

Theresa - Management Board

"This is my third year as a board member and trustee of the RSCDS. I am surprised how quickly the time has passed.

Until I was asked if I would consider standing for the Board, I must admit I had never thought of putting myself forward although I have served twice on my local branch committee in the past.

Over the last few years I have gained so much in my understanding of how the society works – it’s a huge organisation which owes its success to a range of people, not least the members.

Through being involved on a couple of subcommittees I hope I have given something back in a small way to the RSCDS which has given me so many opportunities over my lifetime.

I would strongly recommend serving on the board or one of the committees."

Board and Committee Member Theresa
Anne - Education & Training Committee

"I was interested in becoming involved with E&T because I had a notion that my experience in an area of training far removed from SCD might introduce a different, and possibly useful, point of view. And sharing that experience has already led to some interesting, thoughtful and hopefully productive discussions."
