AGM Nominations to find committee 2018/2019.

Postby Pencil King » Sat Mar 03, 2018 8:53 pm

There is a brief description of the positions below for people unsure about what each position entails. If you would like to run for a position please post below with your name and the position you would like to run for. Once you have done this you will need to be seconded by another club member for you to actually be able to run. If you have any questions about the positions feel free to message the current committee member.

President (Must be a student)- Currently Tom.
This role is an organisational role, it includes organising when committee meetings should be taking place, keeping in contact with Chris Anthony, Amy Dillon and the AU, making sure the club and everything is just running smoothly. A lot of the time it is just emailing people. As president you are also in charge of the health and safety, this means filling out the relevant forms and making sure the correct procedures are followed.

Secretary (Must be a student)- Currently Sam.
-Monitor club email account and forum, reply to any enquiries about the club
-Be aware of all emails directed to the committee. Make sure everyone is made aware of any important information and dates
-Ensure people are sent to compulsory meetings
-Liase with and organise meetings with AU
-Take minutes at club & committee meetings
-Book rooms for AGM/ introductory lecture etc
-Organise sports fair
-Complete kit order

Treasurer (Must be a student)- Currently Devy
Keep track of everything finance related. Check club accounts. Seek fundraising and sponsorship over the summer to ensure a good flow of money into the club.

Social Sec (2 positions available)- Currently Freddie and Izzy
We are looking for a person that will mesh well with the club, that will actively make an effort to get to know people. You will be required to organise sports nights and other sober social events. Please don't just run for free tickets, try and actively get involved at social events, ie think of games people can play. We will help show the new committee social secs how the sports night ticketing system works once you're elected. But most important of all, don't be boring, be banterful instead!

GIMP- Currently Sargent
The Gear Inspection and Maintenance Person, more affectionately known as The GIMP. Someone with an appetite for screwing and is just nuts about bolts.

The GIMP must be capable of either coordinating or conducting repairs on any piece of club kit upon request so that boats, paddles, buoyancy aids and helmets etc. are safe to use. They will also need to keep track of the inventory and make sure the club has the necessary resources and tools to carry out basic repairs.

Whitewater rep- Currently Callum
Look after all things river.
~organise river trips.
*keeping an eye on the weather
*reading rain chasers
*organising drivers
~plan weekend trips
*everything for day trips plus finding accommodation
~work with gimp to buy and maintain kit

And most importantly be super keen for kayaking.

Polo rep- Currently Greer
As polo rep your job is to oversee everything polo, including:
- Organising training and making sure there is someone to run the session
- Working with the polo captains to plan training
- Organise tournaments throughout the year, including paddlington, Cardiff and BUCS
- Be enthusiastic about polo and get as many freshers to join as possible
- Work with the GIMP to buy new polo kit and to maintain current kit

Events rep (Must have been or going to the alps) currently Scope
This position is being brought back this year to take some of the work off the rivers rep and other committee members. The main roles at the moment are organising Tiefi, NSR, Scotland trip at Easter and most importantly the alps in the summer. Obviously they can take on more roles throughout the year depending on what the committee decides. As the alps is our largest trip of the year the events rep must have been to the alps or is going this year, this will just ensure that they know exactly what the alps is like.

Those are all of the roles. Our AGM is on the 14th of March at 7:30 in the learning centre UG-06 so if you are planning on running for a role you will need to prepare a speech for then. The deadline for applying for a position is the Sunday the 13th March so get your names written down and remember that you need to be seconded. If you have any questions please feel free to message the current committee. Good luck.
