Cymmrodorion launch search for Treasurer

Monday 5 July, 2021

The Honorable Society of Cymmrodorion, which promotes the language, literature, arts, and science of Wales, is searching for a new Honorary Treasurer to join the Society during 2021.

Founded in 1751 by Welsh people living and working in London the Cymmrodorion has promoted the development of some of Wales’ most important institutions. Its lecture series in Welsh and English aims to reflect all that is best in contemporary Welsh society and offers an opportunity to discuss a changing Wales. Throughout COVID-19, the Society’s lectures have been broadcast online, and have been very well attended as audiences old and new take a keen interest in its work.

The role of Honorary Treasurer is one of the Cymmrodorion’s most significant. As a Trustee and Member of the Council, the Treasurer helps maintain the Society’s financial records and its membership database. As a member of the Executive Committee, the Treasurer also plays a critical part in the Cymmrodorion’s development and makes recommendations to the Council as to future strategy.

It is not essential that the Honorary Treasurer be based in London or have formal accounting qualifications. It is desirable for the successful applicant to be a Welsh speaker. If you would like to find out more about the role and express an interest in applying, please email the Honorary Secretary at
