The ethos of the Society is that it should be run by the members for the members. But to enable this, annually we elect a number of officers who form the committee.
Officers for 2019/20
Neil Havard – Coordinator
Unlike many societies we don’t have a Chairman or President, but a Coordinator – to help facilitate the work of the Society. The Coordinator does many of the tasks, though, that a chairman or president would in other clubs.
Malcolm Mitchell – Membership Secretary
Contact Malcolm if you are interested in joining the Society, or, if you are a member, if you wish to pay or have any query over your subscription.
Sue Kear – Secretary
Contact Sue for any general communications to the Society.
Rod Salisbury / Paul Broadhead – Treasurer
Contact Rod / Paul for financial matters, if there are bills to pay, or if you wish to give us some money.
Mark & Denise Gibbons – Events Organisers
Mark and Denise organise the speakers for our monthly meetings. If you would like to give a talk to the society, please get in touch with them. There are many opportunities for members to give talks if they wish. Either as the main speaker, in the second half for shorter items, and at our summer Members’ night, or December Christmas meeting.
Susan Snow – Observing Director
Callum Potter – Mercury Editor
Callum edits our Society magazine, Mercury, which comes out every two months. Contributions from members are always welcome.
Rosemary Salisbury – Newsletter Distributor
Rosemary sends out the paper copies of Mercury to those that were not able to attend the monthly meeting where they are normally distributed.
Dave Miller – Website Manager
Dave runs the electronic communications of the Society. The website, emails, etc.
