We have decided that we do not need a committee. Our club is run fully by its membership, and any decisions are put to the whole club, whether that be buying a new club rig, moving venue, or which beach we are going to operate from and when!
The club has one ‘official’ who is responsible for the banking of club funds.
Most of our membership came from another club where one individual ‘ran’ the club, making all the decisions behind closed doors. We decided from the outset that this was not the way to run a club, and that every member should have an equal say in all decisions, and this is the way way have run the club from the first meeting.
