Nominations for election to the board closed on 3rd June. At the AGM, we will once again be reduced to a board of only six trustees. Not only is this insufficient for running a club of this size, it is the minimum number that we are allowed to have. This means that if anyone steps down, the board will become inquorate. This is not a satisfactory position for us to be in. In my view, we need at least two more trustees.
In particular, we need someone to take charge of member engagement. We have recently purchased a website plug-in that enables us to send emails automatically to individual members. This will enable us to welcome people when they sign up, thank them for converting from trial to full membership, remind them when their membership subscription is due and so on. As well as developing and running this system, we need someone to monitor the website forums, advising the board about any issues that are causing concern. If you think that you may be able to help, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I look forward to hearing from you!
