    About this opportunity:Community councils are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland
     •  They bridge the gap between local authorities and communities and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent
     •  The Royal Burgh of St Andrews Community Council (RBSTACC) is looking for someone to type up the monthly notes/minutes of the full Community Council meeting (but not verbatim) from a zoom recording
     •  This will become an historical record which is available to the public as well as Community Councilors
     •  It is a role that could be of interest to someone who is interested in the St Andrews Community area and in local government
     •  As it is from a live meeting zoom recording (due to the pandemic), there is no travel involved
     •  The volunteer will be required for about 3-4 hours per month to listen to the recording and to type up the minutes
     •  There is also the option of attending the actual meeting remotely to get acquainted with the members
     •  In time they hope to get back to face to face in person meetings
     •  They are looking for a volunteer with Audio Typing and minutes composition with a reasonable typing speed
