Urgent request for help from Somerset ASA
Fiona Bowen has emailed Club Secretaries to help fill two important roles for the County. We are pleased to say that we have filled our Welfare Officer role and will confirm this after our Management Committee meeting in January 2018.
The Trophy Controller role is still vacant and we are asking again for Clubs to consider which of their members might take on this role. To have a smooth transition we need the new Trophy Controller to work with Claire Snaydon, our current officer, during the County Championships before she steps down at the AGM in May. This will give the new person the opportunity to shadow and assist Claire before taking on the full responsibility of the role. We know this is a busy time for you all but would appreciate it if you could all approach your members and colleagues and stress the importance of filing this role quickly. View all relevant information on our website. Please don’t assume someone else will step up!
Experienced Meet Manager(s)
Kelly Podbury, our Meet Manager for all County swimming events, will only be able to attend one day of each of the weekends of our County Championships on 21st, 27/28 Jan, 3/4 and 10/11 Feb 2017. Kelly will still set up all entries and do all the preparation beforehand, but what we need is someone to “run” the meet on one day of each weekend. This means being available all day to oversee the running of the Meet, setting up initially in the morning, dealing with any enquiries during the event and ensuring that everything is in place.
Ideally we need someone with experience of running a Meet so we would ask any clubs who run their own Meets to pass this request onto their Meet Manager / Competition Secretary. It doesn’t have to be the same person for each weekend if we get enough volunteers and Kelly is flexible as to which day of the weekend she can do.
We cannot stress the importance of filling both these roles and would ask Clubs to be as proactive as possible in promoting these vacancies and encourage people to step forward and those interested contact Fiona (firstname.lastname@example.org / 01275 877412 / 07970 736225) as soon as possible.
Thank you in anticipation.
