The PAGS is looking for a member to become our Magazine Editor to manage and develop the Society’s quarterly publication ‘Pelargonium and Geranium Society News’ (PAGS News).
The current Editor will be standing down after production of the Spring 2017 edition so a new incumbent will be required to take over and edit the Summer 2017 magazine, the work for this usually being undertaken in May.
Those applying should be highly computer literate, being able to command control over document management and editing as well as digital image manipulation. Although specialist publication software is currently used in the role it is recognised that any publication software could be used to produce the document including Microsoft tools such as ‘Publisher’ and ‘Word’ so if you are competent at using these please get in touch. Help will also always be on hand from PAGS Committee Members.
In being a member of the Society the applicant would have an interest in Pelargoniums and Geraniums and would be required to take an active part in adding content to the magazine – this can be at any level and does not necessarily need to be high calibre expertise. There is also a requirement to source articles and information that may be of interest to members although the Committee are currently looking at different ways to do this.
The member accepting this role will need to report to the PAGS Committee and this would be best achieved by becoming a member of the Committee. The Committee meets just three times a year plus once following the AGM on the day. Mileage expenses are paid to attend theses meetings (except the AGM).
If you are interested then please contact the current Editor, David Taylor
