  • Following the recent facebook discussion, I think we need a marketing or social media rep on the committee. We discuss a lot of topics in the committee which are candidates for a tweet or facebook update to the outside world as well as within our club and currently miss those opportunities. We could do so much better. Thoughts?

    • We need to empower all committee members to be able to post to the Facebook page and Tweet on behalf of the Club. That would bring social media in line with the Mailchimp emails and website updates (which all committee are privileged to do). I’m not sure it needs a dedicated person on committee, so long the policies are agreed by committee. Website is not a committee role either; it just happens that I’m on committee as Treasurer anyway.

      (NB. For those that may not know, the Facebook group is not the same as the page. The page is our public shop-window and not intended for social chats.

      • I’d expand that to ‘Communications Manager’ a role that sets the standards for a representative group (committee and non-committee) to communicate on all platforms.

        • I was going to say that there is a ‘Communications Manager’ role which could be expanded. It is currently a non-committee role, and the main task is newsletters. While our means of communication with members and the public has been updated, the role hasn’t.

  • Some of the above needs correcting. For instance – “the parents\carers of Junior members may attend, speak and vote” is the opposite of what’s stated in the constitution:

    (j) All senior members and junior members (over 15) in good standing are entitled to attend and vote at AGM’s. Junior members under 15 and parents of junior members are welcome to attend meetings but do not have a vote.

    Also, it’s my understanding that some of roles are being vacated – probably best asking all directly, rather than going on my say-so.

  • Does the club have a robust ethics policy? If not I recommend that the committee instigate one ASAP. I would be happy to input to it.
