Early Warning

The next AGM will be held in February 2019 and as a norm all committee members will be subject to re-election other than the General Secretary whose term is set at 3 years. Our current Secretary Bill Golightly apologised at the Committee Meeting on 04.07.2018 but said due to a number of circumstances he reluctantly intended to relinquish this role and his other voluntary club contributions at the 2019 AGM. The reason for this early notice was to afford any interested members the time to considered taking up one of these roles.

• General Secretary This position would be subject to a normal nomination and seconded proposal and the  related voting procedure.

• Co-webmaster. This position is purely voluntary and non elected and involves assisting and cooperating with the Website Secretary Ian Nelson in the general administration, operation and updating of the club website. A knowledge of WordPress would be a distinct advantage.

• Newsletters: An opportunity for anyone interested in writing and putting together a bi-monthly magazine of bits and pieces that may be of interest to club members.

Bill is more than willing to discuss these commitments with any interested members.
