The lack of nominations for Bowls Coordinator and Events Committee at the AGM highlighted the difficulty getting members to take on these roles possibly due to the enormity of the workload, and a lack of experience on the part of many willing helpers who understandably feel daunted by the task.
As a resolution, an alternative structure was discussed with the Bowls Committee suggesting three teams being Social Events Team, Special or Prestige Events Team and Games Room controllers be established & coordinated by the Ladies President(Barb Styles), Men’s President(Troy Somerville) and Vice President(Martie Pettifer) respectively.
The respective coordinators would then recruit a suitable mix of experience and inexperience to facilitate the roles and expand knowledge among the group.
This team as part of the BC would work with the Entertainment & Sponsorship Director plus the Treasurer and once the State & District Calendars were confirmed, set the Club Calendar for the year and effectively organise and run bowls at the Club.
The suggested structure was supported in principle and it was decided to implement the framework.
