Can you help us on the Committee?

Our Branch has a couple of vacancies on the Committee and an AGM coming up in April so this notice is to alert members and to request that you consider nominating for the Committee and provide a helping voice in running the Branch's affairs. 
The Committee meets about six times each year and has a fairly short list of things to manage. Our annual functions such as the Odyssey and the Christmas function are managed by the Committee, and the regular functions such as Rides and the Spare Tyre are overseen by the Committee and managed by a Coordinator from the Committee.

All positions are open for nominations each year, however I do want to bring to your attention 3 specific roles:

  • For the past year or so we've operated with one less general Committee member than we could have, and it makes sense to fill that position to have a more diverse and more robust Committee.
  • We are also in need of a Treasurer: Maryanne Tigges has fulfilled this role for 4 years and has done a splendid job in spite of living remotely from our Branch and working full time too, but has decided not to re-nominate this year. I can assure you that the incoming Treasurer will inherit the accounts in good order and up-to-date!
  • Our esteemed Spare Tyre Editor Brian Quintal would like to hand over his role. Brian has quietly and efficiently carried out this role for long enough to politely say "it's time" so we are looking for an organised person good with words!
Please consider nominating for a Committee position. The Committee's work is relatively straightforward, the meetings are sensibly brief and very convivial. And there's only a half dozen of them each year!
Nomination forms are here on the website: Nominations close 7th March 2019

The Melbourne Branch AGM is set down for Sunday 7th April this year.  

Any queries to Brian L or any other Committee Member (discrete and non-committal discussions welcome if you're unsure about nominating!)
