Please find attached to this notice a copy of the agenda, the minutes from the 2018 AGM and the nomination form.
Portreath SLSC is a fantastic club and requires support all year round to run effectively, it would not be where it is without the support of everyone involved. This includes helping with fundraising, coaching, safety cover/patrolling, cleaning, maintenance around the club and supporting events. As the club continues to grow, it’s becoming even more important that we receive as much support as possible from members, parents of members to help with the club where possible.
Portreath SLSC Executive Committee is made up of 6 roles, all of which are Trustees of the club. Under our existing constitution, all officers of the executive committee retire their positions each year but will be eligible for re-appointment at the AGM. The executive committee at Portreath is made up of the following 7 positions:
