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. We can also co-opt members onto the committee at any time, to assist with any of the main roles or for specific tasks. If you as a member would like to help but cannot commit to a full role, please contact the coordinator to offer your services.

Officers for 2020/21

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.

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.
