This month’s meeting will be at the Southern Cross Hotel 7.30pm, corner Cuba St & Abel Smith St
Sara Passmore speaks about working with the British Humanist Association
Sara is the former Head of Education and Promotion at the British Humanist Association (BHA) where she had responsibility for promoting understanding of Humanism, including through an educational setting, and for promoting the BHA to diverse audiences. Sara studied Education and English Literature at the Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, and has since led multi-million pound educational programmes across the UK as a projects manager at Personal Finance Education Group (PFEG). Sara represented the BHA on the National Council of Faiths and Beliefs in Further Education and The Religious Education Council of England and Wales. She is the former Vice Chair of Southwark Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts. In her spare time she volunteers at the Wellington Women's Boarding House, managing communications and development.
In this meeting Sara will focus on how the British Humanist Association became one of the leading campaigning organisations in the UK and how it uses volunteers, fundraising and events to raise its public profile. The BHA has consultation status at the E.U. and U.N, making it a leading voice for nonreligious people across the world. It has over 30,000 members and supporters and regularly contributes to public debates and government policy.
We meet from 7.30 pm until 9.30 pm
All interested people are welcome, Society members and members of the public – bring a friend.
