Hello fellow Windrushers!
This is your formal notice that the Windrush Triathlon Club AGM is taking place on Thursday 4th November 2021 at 19:00.
Please sign up below to allow us to book the correct venue for the number. Please do this by the 4th October! Click here to sign up now!
The end of the triathlon season is almost here and so is the time of the year when we look to our members to consider putting their hands up to stand for Committee and co-opted roles at the AGM in November (more on that below).
So, if you’re feeling the Windrush love, have had some brilliant times or have benefitted from being in the club this year (or before) - or are just starting out and want to get more involved/want to give something back, why not think about putting your name forward for one of our many, varied positions?
The club is entirely dependent on brilliant volunteers giving a little of their spare time in order to keep it running as efficiently and successfully as it does. The Club's Committee and co-opted roles have done a fantastic job in 2021 under tough conditions, but as per usual protocol, everyone will be standing down from their position at the AGM. This means that all roles are vacant for anyone to stand for – with no concerns about stepping on toes!
Every year we encourage our members to consider standing for committee and co-opted roles (because without volunteers giving up a little of their time to keep things running, the tasks those positions are responsible for just won't happen). We also often hear that people feel hesitant to nominate themselves, for fear of stepping on people's toes, but this is not what we want! We want all positions to be contested, so that the we all benefit from having the best people (and new energy/ideas!) running the club.
So far, there are a few Committee members not re-standing and therefore we are asking you to please consider putting your name forward for a position if you think you can. I’ve listed all the roles below – so why not have a read through and think about whether there’s something there which you’d enjoy doing and help us continue to make Windrush great in 2021/2? I’ve listed the current holder of the post against each role in the link below in case you want to reach out and ask any questions.
The current Committee Members NOT re-standing are:
Secretary - Ben Daniels
Treasurer - Jake Booth
IT Officer - Colin Merton
Welfare Officer - Jen Clark
Marketing Officer - Laura Hamilton
We're hosting a 'Meet the Committee' session after the Cross Country on 16th October, where you’ll have the opportunity to join many of the Committee and co-opted roles to ask us any questions you may have about our roles and what we do behind the scenes. Of course, feel free to reach out directly to anyone on the Committee (or in a co-opted role) to ask questions.
This will be your opportunity to hear from the Committee in terms of what we’ve been doing over the past year and it will also be the occasion where we vote in the new Committee and any proposed changes to the constitution. An agenda will follow nearer the time, but for now, three things for you all to think about:
The deadline for suggestions for changes to the Constitution is the 9th October 2021.
Any questions, please let me know
See you in November.
