The post of chairman has been advertised for several months now since Cliff Dimond, your current chairman, confirmed that he will be standing down at the forthcoming Group AGM in November.
There have been no volunteers coming forward so far although some feedback has been received suggesting that the role is perceived as a little daunting. As a response to this, your committee has agreed a revised role description that removes the 'good to do' tasks and focuses just on the 'must do' tasks. This updated role description can be accessed via clicking on the Links button.
It is hoped that the reduced duties of the role will now encourage volunteers from within our Group to come forward. In conjunction with the committee, this role description can be developed and modified over time to suit the skills and experience of the new chairman.
Cliff remains willing to provide a full hand over and could offer a ‘shadowing’ arrangement for a period of time if that would be helpful.
Worcester Group has great momentum at present and it would be a major setback not to be able to build upon this seamlessly with an enthusiastic replacement.
Your committee is very keen to fill this role at the next AGM, so please consider your nomination and take the opportunity to contribute by contacting Cliff or any member of your committee via the 'Help/Contact Us' page on our website or have a chat on one of our walks.
Remember – this is your Group and it can only function and continue to improve if volunteers come forward from the membership.
