Good morning Climbers!

Happy second e-mail of the day. I would like to bring your attention to the
fact that the AGM date has been set for the 3rd of May and that there are
many committee positions that need filling for next year. If you think
you're friendly, responsible, approachable and organised and feel that you
have the skills to fill any of the roles listed below, then you should
definitely think about standing for a position! If you don't think you're
those things, but others think you are then you should also consider
standing. If you know you aren't any of these things and don't even want to
be part of the committee anyway then you should still come along as there
may well be free cookies and you can give us your feedback on how you think
this year has gone and how we can improve for next year.

Here is a description of each position as well as the name of the person
who currently holds it so that you know who to talk to if you're interested:

(Monday and Thursday nights), day trips and weekend trips. Is the
main liaison with Sport Swansea and chairs committee meetings, providing
the agenda and delegating tasks to other committee members. The candidate

Responsible for taking, writing up and circulating minutes from committee
meetings and booking accommodation for weekend trips (incl. liaison with

anything to lose by standing. Oh and we'll probably be heading for a fun
night in tooters afterwards to celebrate the end of a fantastic year!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
