Election of Chairperson

Hi All,

I stated at the AGM that after 14 years I would be resigning at the next AGM in September.

We have been trying to find a new Chairperson, but have so far been unsuccessful. I am sure there are a number of members in the club, who have the right skills and experience to carry out the role. In order to assist I attach a job description of the Chairperson.  

If you are interested, please let me or a member of the committee know.

Regards Gavin
