Still looking for a Club Captain, Club Vice Captain & Club Treasurer

Read More

    Just a reminder that Clay and I (Nikki) will be standing down from our roles as Club Captain and Treasurer at the AGM this year.

    It’s vital that these roles are filled for the continued operations of the club!

    We’ll both be available to the committee and to the new office bearers for help with the transition and ongoing support, but we would like to start training our successors before we leave the committee.

    The Vice Captain’s role is currently vacant and is the ideal opportunity to learn the Captain’s role before stepping up to the Captain’s position in November.

    If you or someone you know might be interested, please call or email Nikki or Clay to find out more about the jobs.
