The Board of Trustees
The Board is responsible for the day-to-day running of the club and for producing and updating the relevant policies and codes of conduct for the operational management of the Club. They meet regularly for approximately 1 to 1.5 hours and members receive a summary of the business discussed and agreed at each meeting.
If members have any general enquires they should contact [email protected]. Any member can ask to attend a meeting to raise, in person, any point, issue or question they may have.
The Trustees are elected at the Annual General Meeting, held in May, and consists of the following positions:
- Club President
- General Secretary
- Women’s Captain
- Men’s Captain
- Hill Running Captain
- Child Protection and Welfare Officer
- Up to five general members
Trustees are expected to attend the majority of meetings and to take an active part in discussions and decision making processes. They should also be willing to help out at club events.
It is beneficial for Trustees to attend some training nights, giving them an opportunity to meet and mix with members and to get a feel for any issues and concerns members may have and to seek their opinions and ideas.
Here is a brief summary of the current roles and responsibilities of each post. The lists of duties are not exhaustive and are subject to ongoing review to ensure they meet the developing needs of the clubs and its members. Where appropriate, duties can be delegated to give Trustees who are interested an opportunity to get more involved in the day to day running of the club.
