Multitasking: AGM + Dinner 'til Dusk

If there is one thing that I'm a fan of it's multitasking. That's right, doing two things at once (toilet and Twitter being my favourite!), or combining two things to minimise the time spent washing, travelling and changing my clothes. Now as a committee we are eager to keep up to date with these fads and trends so we have decided to embrace this philosophy – on the the 27th of March, straight after the Dinner 'til Dusk winners have been announced we will be hosting this years AGM, live at the Allotment!

One of the activities that takes place at the AGM is the voting for the members of the committee for the next year, but for the vote to go ahead (and for the club to be successful) we need to have people who put themselves forward to take on roles within the club and dedicate time and energy towards helping the club to run and progress.

If you think that you have the time and skills that mean you could make a contribution to the club as a committee member then then please e-mail me ( setting out which role you would like to stand for, and a few paragraphs setting out why you would be suitable for the role.

(If you feel able to only take on part of the role, or don't want to be a committee member but have a burning desire to be more involved in the running of the club - e.g. a love of producing membership letters - please also send me an e-mail.)

These e-mails must reach me by 20/03/11 and I will then publish all of them the day after, giving plenty of time for all the members to read, digest and consider who they will vote for at the AGM.

Below are the committee roles that you can stand for:

The three Trustee roles(club officers, underwrite the club to Longleat, account signatories and have vote on all club activities. Essential roles for club to function):

Chairman – responsible for steering the club and overseeing all its activities including overall trail development.
Club Secretary – responsible for all membership and meeting related administration for the club.
Treasurer – responsible for keeping records of all financial transactions, setting budgets and maintaining accounts for the club.

All Health and Safety, Insurance, and legal issues will be the responsibility of the Trustees.

General Committee Roles:

Website/IT – responsible for facilitating and maintaining the clubs IT & Website needs.
DH – a focal point for DH specific trail development and activities.
XC – a focal point for XC specific trail development and activities.
DJ – a focal point for DJ specific trail development and activities.

    Well last year loads of people said that we should hold the AGM at the Allotment, so that’s what we’re doing. If it doesn’t work, we’ll do it somewhere different next year. 🙂

    oh, and there’ll be shelters….
