Executive Committee Monthly Update

Following some recent feedback from you (the membership), the Executive Committee intend to provide short monthly updates on the work it does behind the scenes.

Before I do that I thought it would be useful to explain who the Executive Committee are, what we do and briefly summarise some of the projects we have completed over recent years.

The Executive Committee (EC)

In a nutshell, the management of the club is entrusted to the EC who are elected at the club's AGM, held before the start of each season. The club constitution details how the EC is formed and how it conducts the club's business. The EC are current members of the club who voluntarily give up their time to run the club.

Details of who sit on the EC is set out on our website:
