NAM on Facebook

NAM Facebook

To streamline how we all contact each other and share information the Committee would like to encourage everyone to join Facebook.

To assist with that we have invited Slavina Dimitrova, an expert on social media, to talk at our next Members’ Meeting.

Slavina will give an introduction into Facebook and demonstrate that it is simple, safe and so convenient. Moreover, the session will be a chance to have answered all those questions which you had thought of but never asked.

This is a great opportunity and we look forward to seeing everyone on 9 February at the Britannia Hotel

Process for New Observers

The follow is a link to a document which describes the selection criteria for those wanting to become Observers.

It outlines how to prepare for the Observer role, the selection method, the training that will take place and the continued development Observers need to agree to.

It also outlines the progression through the various Observer positions i.e. National Observer, Training Team and Chief Observer.

The number of new Observers required will be determined annually, dependant upon expected demand and retirements.

If you require any further information, please contact any member of the Training Team.

The observer criteria can be found here - Observer Selection Criteria ( 31kb PDF)
