The AGM will take place this year on Wednesday 20th March, you can find the details here: https://su-mc.org/events/agm-2019/
Every position below is up for grabs and must be filled, so run for any position you fancy and we'll vote on who we think is the best person for the role!
At the start of the AGM we will have a vote on a slight committee restructure, these roles are marked with an *asterisk*.
The big, bad boss of the committee. You take care of the rest of the committee and drive the direction and atmosphere of the club for the year. You can use this role however you see fit, running your own projects which you feel will improve the club and all its members. You will be the primary face of the club, answering emails from affiliate organisations and many new members to the club. It helps to have a passion for climbing, this club, and persuading all the new freshers in October to come and join in our fun! This is a busy role, with small titbits of stress sometimes, but it is highly rewarding and the best way in which to use your own ideas to benefit everyone!
The president’s right-hand man. The main role of the VP is organising the annual Christmas Trip. This is a very stressful job but one of the most rewarding as it is many people’s favourite time of the year. New this year, the VP will also take on the role of the promo sec, helping us get new members and kitting us all out in awesome merch! VP will also be the brains behind the journal for the year!
In charge of handling all the club’s money. A lot of money changes hands in SUMC and the treasurer is responsible for making sure we’re not over/under spending and getting the best deal for our members. Stress comes periodically with 3 rounds of funding throughout the year where we try our best to claw as much money out of SUSU as possible. The treasurer is also our main BMC contact, responsible for handing member lists and keeping us insured. A busy job, but an important one!
Described by Princess as “secretly the most important job in the club.” You get to decide when and where our fortnightly meets take place and the general role consists of booking minibuses and huts and getting climbers to where they need to be! There’re multiple ways to go about this role which you can decide to go for, either you take alternating responsibility for the meets or you share the duties, or maybe a mix of the two!
In charge of getting the club strong! Weekly trips to Calshot or Red Spider (and maybe Oakwood, Reading or Gecko!?) are your responsibility to organise. Being able to drive the bus is not a necessity (but can save faff of finding drivers every week). A perfect role for any plastic junkies!
The perfect job for the gear-obsessed climbing nerd! You get the biggest budget to spend on shiny things to keep all our climbers happy. This is your reward for maintaining club gear and fighting it off members who are unwilling to let it go. Another busy role which includes a lot of funding applications and almost daily commitment but so important as we can’t climb without gear!
Safety and Skills involves carrying out the risk assessments for all the types of climbing/activities we do as a club. You organise the much-loved first aid and ropes courses to keep everyone safe out at the crag. You’ll write any funding applications to help fund these courses and if you have the inclination, you can write blog posts about various different skills for the website.
This year we are opting to have two social secs! There will be In charge of organising all the club socials for the year! Traditionally a super busy job and quite committing, therefore having two of you should split the load! It is important that socials are both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, and it can be good fun thinking up different socials to keep everyone happy week after week! Like meet 1 and A, its up to you guys how you split the role!
In charge of getting us to competitions and resetting the Uni Wall. One of the two jobs with a pre-requisite as setting experience is vital to keep the wall sets to a high standard. You will be the link between us and sport and wellbeing and organise multiple resets a year, during resets this is a busy, slightly stressful job but it should be worth it to see everyone enjoying your creation!
Keeps the website working at all costs! The other job with a pre-requisite as some experience with HTML/CSS, Python and SSH and Unix is required in this role. It can be an easy job or extremely high stress if someone breaks the website or the servers expire!
There you have it, our 12 new and improved committee roles for 2019! If anyone has any questions about the roles drop me (Tom) a message! Looking forward to seeing you all at the AGM!Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
