New to 2013, The Vegan Society has welcomed a score of specialist advisors to the team. This will ensure that our research and lobbying activities will be supported by experts in the field. The aim of the new Advisory Board is to provide overall strategic advice to the Society’s Council and SeniorManagement. Working by this model will help The Vegan Society to become a stronger, more effective organisation, and forge important new alliances with academics and policy-makers.
Already launched: the Research and Policy Committee – a diverse range of volunteers with specialist skills and experience in the areas of research and policy. By developing full studies on the benefits of veganism, we hope to capitalise on joint funding opportunities for vegan outreach, influence student research projects, and find support for political advocacy and media work.
Still to come: our special advisors in health and nutrition will form our new Health and Nutrition Committee. Expertise is still needed in Fundraising, PR, and Change Management – can you help?
If you think you might have specialist skills we could use, and would like to join our Advisory Board, please contact volunteer@ vegansociety.com to find out more.
