THE WINDSOR YACHT CLUB A Message from the Committee With the AGM looming fast our thoughts are becoming focused on next year’s programme and delivering that to the members. A couple of the long serving committee members wish to resign at this year’s AGM. As a result there are spaces to fill……! We are therefore looking for new members to join the committee – ideally people who will, in time, be happy to progress through the Flag Officer ranks. The role of a committee member involves attending, and contributing to, committee meetings throughout the year and running the bar on appointed weekends. It would be great to have some new members on the team with new ideas. If you are interested in joining the committee in 2020 please complete one of the Nomination Forms emailed (the proposer and seconder can be any other club member) and return the form to Kate (either by email - firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving the completed form at the club) no later than 1 November 2019. If you would like more information about being on the committee, please speak to our Vice Commodore, Karen (07882 777236). At the AGM itself we will also be looking for volunteers to join the Social Committee - We all enjoy the club’s social events and to this end, the Vice Commodore has formed a Social Committee to help the Flag Officers produce the social programme. However we have spaces for more members. The sub-committee will consist of a group of members who will discuss and put forward ideas for future social events, as well as assisting in the organisation and booking for each year’s programme. Anyone wishing to join the Social Committee does not need to be nominated in advance of the AGM. If you would like more information about being on the Social Committee, or would like to have an input, have ideas or just want to help again please speak to Karen (07882 777236). There will be an initial meeting of the Social Committee on Sunday 27th October 2019 at 11am. All are welcome. We are also looking for an Assistant Bar Manager, who does not have to be on the committee, to help the Bar Manager with the general running of the bar. This would involve assisting where necessary with stock takes and ordering stock and undertaking those duties when the Bar Manager is unable to do so (ie during holiday periods). If you would be interested in helping with this please let Karen know (07882 777236).
