The Westbury Harriers Annual General Meeting will take place on Monday 19th March after training in the bar upstairs at Coombe Dingle (8.10pm). Light buffet provided.

We appreciate this is not the most exciting evening of the Westbury Harriers calendar (make sure you get your tickets for the Anniversary Dinner on 7th April and the awards night on the 28th April). However, it is essential and it is about how your club is run.

We do have some vacant positions on the committee. It is really important that we have positions filled, people need to be able to leave roles knowing that someone else will take them on. Committee positions are not for life (only for those that choose!). At different stages in people’s lives they may have some time to give something back to the club and help it run. So, if that is you, please do consider a role on the committee. Over the years we have created different positions and review those roles every year to make sure they are manageable and meet the changing needs of the club. If you are interested in any of the positions please feel free to speak to any committee member to find out more before the AGM. Job roles are available. Support from outgoing or existing committee members is fully available.

Club secretary – being the point of administrative contact for the club and England Athletics

Club Development Officer – looking at areas the club needs to develop and change as we move forward, assessing the changing needs of the club and the systems we have to support it,  looking at how we incorporate club initiatives and programmes from England Athletics

Reception Assistant (new role) – the reception area of the club has grown over the last few years. Providing support and administrative assistance to the Reception Coordinator

But please do not come along because you think you will get roped into doing something, you won’t. It is important for us to have a good representation of club members and a chance for to raise anything you wish.
