I am writing to let you know that after 4 years where I have been proud to be your Amnesty International Regional Rep for the West Midlands I will be standing down from my Amnesty roles to recharge my batteries and focus on other interests for a while. It has been an honour, a pleasure and enjoyable to have had the chance to do this role. However, all good things come to an end and my time is done. I would really recommend to anyone interested and active in Amnesty locally that you find someone (or perhaps two people) who can do this role to ensure that views of local groups in the region get to head office, that a regional conference can take place and coordinate activity between groups. It may well be that you also wish to see if you can find someone to look after the blog, Twitter and Facebook accounts too.
I plan to officially stand down as of 30th November but I will work with anyone interested in performing a regional role to ensure they have the support they need and Farshid, Local Groups Officer is there to provide assistance too.
Thanks to each and every activist and group for all you do and for the way you have worked with me and each other to further the cause of human rights.
Contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about the role of Regional Representative. If you’d be interested in sharing the role with someone else please let me know.
Looking at the little star above this comments box, I’d like to be the first to NOT like this post! We’ll miss your energy and commitment Simon – however, wishing you all the best with the interesting things you are moving on to 🙂
