  • Jointly responsible with the Chair for the Club’s finances.
  • Responsible for all the financial commitments of the Club.
  • Will keep records of income and expenditure for the purpose of HMRC’s requests.
  • Will continue to provide regular updates to the Committee regarding the financial status of the Club and will plan provisions to ensure sustainability.
  • Will provide a financial summary at the AGM for the previous year.

There’s more information about what generally being a committee member involves, and the benefits, on our join the committee page. 

If you’d like to know more, feel free to speak to any committee member, or Johnny, who are all happy to help and share experiences.
