Our club is almost solely reliant on our wonderful volunteers. Each year, so many people take time out of their personal lives to contribute to many aspects of the organisation.
Over the next few weeks, we will be actively seeking members to fill roles on our committee and sub-committees. These are great opportunities for all members to give back to the community and get more involved in our organisation.
It is up to you how you help out - some roles might require 20 minutes or responding to emails a week, while others are more time consuming. See the list below.
“The risk you run in a volunteer organisation is that a small amount of people end up doing the heavy lifting resulting in burn out and general lack of interest” said Club President Charlie Pitney on launching the Recruitment Drive.
“We want to spread this load so that more people are actively engaging with one another in our club, and I believe it will actually result in a greater sense of community amongst our members. I always hear members saying ‘the club should do this - the club should do that’ but the truth is that as members you are the club. If you have suggestion, help us implement it by joining our team! We wan't to make this club fun and enjoyable for all and we need your help!’
Joining our team is a great development opportunity for members to gain experience in many aspects of their personal and professional lives. You will work alongside a wide range of people and engage with a diverse group of stakeholders. There are also many great opportunities for team members through LSV and SLSA.
Parents - encourage your kids to give it a try and kids, get your parents involved!
