Nominations for 2016 Management Committee

The executive positions of President, Vice-President and Treasurer and three committee positions, Secretary, Registrar and Operational position will be elected at the AGM.  We are now seeking nominations for these positions and encourage all members to consider nominating for one of these important roles within Teviot Downs Soccer Club.

A number of committee members may not be returning to the 2016 Management Committee, including the position of Treasurer.  The Treasurer role is vital within the club and this position must be filled as the club can’t operate without a Treasurer.  If you have financial management skills and feel you would like to add value to our great club, I urge you to consider applying for this position.

We encourage you to put your hand up and join our friendly and dedicated committee members who all volunteer their time to enable hundreds of kids to enjoy their weekend football.

It is important to note that joining the committee does not mean you will have to spend your life at the club; however, you should note that there will be some time to be spent at the club for committee meetings and shared time between committee members on training and game days.

If you are interested in finding out more about any of the positions or joining the committee, please feel free to contact either me or any one of the other current committee members (contact details on the website).

Club Volunteers for 2016:

The 2015 season is now behind us and we are now full speed ahead with our preparations for 2016. There are many exciting challenges facing us in the season ahead. One of the major tasks faced by the committee every year is attracting people to the numerous volunteer roles that are so critical to the successful management of the club, this will be more vital in 2016 as we are expecting further growth. There are people who have already been assisting with these roles last season. The committee requires those people who wish to continue in these positions for the 2016 season to advise them with an expression of interest letter to the committee.

Expressions of interest are currently being called for the following non-committee roles for the 2016 season.
