Join The Committee!
April 18, 2016

The committee is elected at the AGM which is this month’s meeting on Tuesday April 26th.

All of our officers are stepping down – without a President, a Secretary, and a Treasurer WE WILL HAVE TO CLOSE.

We need help with a lot more than just those key positions though – here are all of the roles that help to make our WI as good as possible:

  • President – manages WI, face of WI
  • Vice President – Manages in place of President when not available
  • Secretary – takes minutes at committee meetings, receives WI post, liaises with people running groups
  • Treasurer – in charge of the money
  • Communications Officer – putting information onto website, emails
  • Marketing – creating flyers and other marketing materials, social media
  • Membership Secretary – MCS, signing people in at meetings, helping to increase membership
  • Finance Officer – dealing with cash and receipts at meetings, and taking to the bank
  • Events – organising fundraising and event stalls etc.

The kinds of things we organise:

  • activities and outings for each monthly meeting
  • supplies for meetings, including drinks, cakes, craft materials and more
  • raffle prizes
  • fundraising to keep our WI going
  • fundraising for and working with charities
  • subgroups
  • getting involved with our federation and the WI as a whole
  • opportunities and events for members

The committee meets once a month on the Tuesday before the main meeting and email a little during the month, but it won’t take over your life. There is absolutely no minimum time you have to be a member of our WI to join the committee. It’s a great way to really get to know people in the group and gives a great sense of satisfaction from helping to run such a lovely WI.

If you’d like to join, all you have to do is stand at this month’s meeting!
