While the committee will welcome any help - for example, on short-term 'special projects' - as can be seen, a number of positions remain vacant.  The Committee is very keen to hear from people willing to fill these roles:

  • Junior Athletes' Representative - this role represents the viewpoint of junior athletes of the club at Committee Meetings.  It could be held either by a parent of a young member, or by a junior athlete (16-19yo) directly; perhaps with a view to them 'graduating' to a full Committee role in the future.
  • Publicity Officer - promoting club/athlete news to an audience outside of AW via newspaper, radio, TV, other websites, etc. (NB - this is separate to the Mercury columnist position, which will continue to be held by Dave Ross)
  • Fundraising & Sponsorships Officer - coordinate volunteers for the club's fundraising events; pursue appropriate sponsorship of the club, deals for members, and donations of prizes
  • Grants Officer - seek grants and pursue funding to aid the club and its members
