Fight for the future of fishing
The Angling Trust is looking for volunteers who care about fishing and can dedicate their time and expertise in the following areas.
Can you use your personal or professional experience using social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to help us: attract new members, publicise our fight for the future of fishing, engage with younger anglers and provide daily, up to the minute information on what the Angling Trust has been doing?
If the answer to any of these is yes we would very much like to hear from you by reply.

If you have experience in any of the following areas we could make use of your hands-on help or advice: public relations and press release writing, website content and content management systems, copywriting, WordPress and other blogging tools.
Assisting the Angling Trust with these parts of our Media and Communications Strategy might be useful to a company or individual seeking to develop their experience or client portfolio.
Enthusiastic volunteers are needed planning and setting up our presence at big annual events such as the CLA Game Fair and the Go Fishing Show. You will work as part of our Events Team helping to set up the stand and recruiting new members. While previous experience working at or attending events will be useful it is not essential and all training will be provided, plus a free entry ticket to the events.
Volunteers are needed to scan the various online angling forums in order to flag up references to the Angling Trust which we need to respond to and also identify areas where we need to increase our profile. If you have previous experience using or moderating online forums we would love to hear from you.
This is a unique opportunity to work for a professional organisation representing anglers. If you or somebody you know can help us achieve our objectives by volunteering, please let us know by replying to this message at will.smith@Anglingtrust.net or alternatively ring me, Will Smith, on 0844 77 00 616.
The Angling Trust is the single, united organisation to represent the interests of all sea, coarse, and game anglers so that they can enjoy the freedom to go fishing in a healthy water environment. We campaign for the protection of anglers' rights and for the protection of the marine and freshwater environment and fish stocks. We take legal action to prevent pollution and other damage to fisheries and to compensate our members for any such damage. We promote the benefits of angling and encourage greater participation by people of all ages and backgrounds. We manage and promote regional and national competitions and Team England Angling in all disciplines at international level.
I wonder if KA would be a good choice for scanning Sea Angling forums?
