The YVAA is always pleased to have offers from those who would like to join the Committee. We have been pleased to recruit several new members recently:
- Thomas Sharp as Treasurer;
- Trevor McDermot as Membership Secretary;
- Tim Holt as website manager;
- Chris Ireland and Jed Turner as Cross Country Championship Coordinators.
Additionally, Tim and Trevor have offered to help share John Popiolek’s Grand Prix race results role. Thanks again John and Trish for all your hard work across many events!
However, we would still welcome new members! The YVAA does not run itself, it needs your involvement. Please don’t think that somebody else will volunteer. If you enjoy YVAA events, have enthusiasm, and can spare a couple of hours 4 or 5 times a year you could be a Committee Member helping to run the YVAA. Without new ‘blood’ YVAA will eventually perish!
Committee Members meet about 4 times per year, on Zoom at the moment but in each member’s area by turn in normal times. We also help with the results/prize-giving at Grand Prix and Championship events when available, sharing out attendances between us. In the event that you attend as a helper a race that you are not taking part in, a petrol allowance is payable.
We do still need someone to take over as our Road Relays Championship Coordinator. This doesn’t involve actually organising the course, marshals, etc., but liaising with the host club’s organiser to ensure that everything is in place, and dealing with race entries, number allocations, and registration on the day, with assistance from other Committee members.
If anyone would be interested in coming on to the Committee and putting something back into the organisation of the YVAA then please do contact us using our contact form.
