I first joined the Royal Numismatic Society in 2011, having won its Parkes Weber Prize in 2008. I was proud to be elected to membership of the Council in 2014 and served until 2019 in roles including evaluation of applications for grants and awards, nomination of recent publications for Society recognition and regular oversight of Society business.
In addition, from 2017-2019 I ran the Society website. This involved completely redesigning its appearance, migrating the site to a new host, and creating a regular blog updating members on the use made of Society grants and on upcoming events. I also oversaw a move towards direct purchase of Society publications though the website.
