Nominate for the Management Committee

To nominate you must be a paid up member of the organisation.  All positions are declared vacant at each Annual General Meeting and the members for the coming year appointed at that time. However, the Committee can second members if it considers that appropriate during the year and sometimes vacancies arise.
