Our existing class secretary, Suzanne Farmer, will be standing down from the role. Having spent over a year in the role, other commitments have increased and meant Suzanne has had to take the hard decision to step down. As a class, we would like to thank her for the time and efforts in the role.
This does offer an opportunity for another person to take up this important class role moving forward. As a class we recognise the importance of this role, and as such it is part funded (one of only three in the class).
We have a role description which provides an overview of the role and the expectations, and which you can download here:
Applications should be made to the Class Chair. Please provide a covering note, outlining your suitability for the role, and also a brief CV.
Application closing date - 8th May 2018
Interviews - Week commencing 21st May 2018 (final date and venue TBC)
Members of the committee will be available at Grafham Water Sailing Club during NS4 (April 28/29 2018) for informal discussions relating to the role should you be interested.
