Committee Changes since the AGM
At its first meeting on 27 March, the Committee determined that the Communications and Sponsorship role should be split into two roles. In accordance with Section 8(f)(v) of the Constitution, Tricia Bishop was appointed to the Sponsorship Officer role and the Publicity Officer role was declared vacant.
On 24 April, Janet Cruise was appointed to the Communications Officer role under section 8(e) of the Constitution.
The Committee is still seeking a member to fill the vacant Publicity Officer role. Some computer skills are required.
Today it has been announced that Helen Godden has advised that she is unable to continue as Vice President and has resigned. So we have another casual vacancy. As this is one of the four committee positions that make up the Executive, it is urgent that it is filled. Please contact the Secretary if you are able to help, or know someone who can.
The duties of the position of Committee Member are currently being undertaken by the Cook Management Team. Further information on this will be provided in the next Connecting Threads.
You are able to contact any of the committee through the website.
