2020/21 Committee

Wednesday, June 17th, 2020

At the club AGM held on Zoom on 3rd June there were some changes to the committee for 2020/21  including a new committee role of Social Media Co-ordinator.

John Holian took over from Peter Wilson as President, Howard Herbert stepped in as Treasurer and Lisa Duffield was appointed Social Media Co-ordinator. The new role came about following the National Secretary’s request for committee details including “Social Media”, a new position not defined in the current guide which combines the social media responsibilities of several existing roles.  Successful clubs often attribute membership growth to their use of social media and it was agreed that our club would benefit from co-ordinating activity across all channels including Facebook, LinkedIn, Meetup, local websites, links on our own website and any other channels deemed appropriate. Lisa Duffield offered her services, already familiar with using social media to promote her business, and was enthusiastically and unanimously voted in! Members can continue to contribute as they do now within the overall strategy for social media set by our new office holder.

 

Dates were agreed on the assumption that we will be able to meet in person from September and that Linton Memorial Hall is open and available. The new season is scheduled to kick off on Thursday 17th September at 8pm.

This is the full committee:

President: John Holian

Immediate past President: Peter Wilson

Treasurer: Howard Herbert

Education Director: Jocelyn Brooks

Social Media Co-ordinator: Lisa Duffield

Social Secretary: Niki Boersma

Publicity Officer: Neil Wilson

Secretary & Webmaster: Chris Clissitt

Next meeting via Zoom 2nd July

Friday, June 5th, 2020

The club will continue holding Zoom meetings through June and July, take a break in August and kick off the new season on Thursday 17th September. We hope to be meeting in person by then at Linton Memorial Hall.

The next Zoom meeting will be on Thursday 2nd July commencing 8.00 pm. It will feature speeches, evaluations and “chain” topics where one member gives a topic to another member, who gives a topic to the next member, and so on until all have spoken. Then each evaluates the member to whom they have given a topic.

Please e-mail our Immediate Past President, Peter Wilson, for joining details.
