The May AGM is almost upon us once again and that can mean only one thing... No, not just an open bar, but your chance to get involved with the Wells Angels WI Committee!
Do you love our WI and want to get involved with the behind-the-scenes work that makes the meetings, subgroups and events run smoothly whilst ticking *all* the WI rulebook boxes? Great!
The committee is hella fun but it's also a big commitment and a lot of work. We need you to be:
- Available to attend and occasionally host meetings on the evening of the first Monday of each month
- Enthusiastic about helping our WI run like a well-oiled machine
- Pro-active in your approach to representing your role and carrying out all duties
- Able to devote time outside of meetings to taking care of anything relating to your role
- Willing to muck in and help out with the responsibilities of other members of the team
- Great at working collaboratively with a group of amazing women
If this sounds like you, please send the following information to us via email by the end of the day of Monday 10 April, the date of our April meeting.
- Your name
- Your contact information
- A brief biography
- A brief summary of why you want to join the committee and what you would bring to the group
- A photo of your lovely face!
All nomination information will be collated into a ballot sheet so that members attending the May meeting on Monday 8 May can vote on who they would like to make up the committee for this year.
Your current committee
Since our last AGM, your current committee have been working hard to bring you a year's worth of inspiring, entertaining and educational meetings and and events.
Meet the team in advance of voting in May.
Hanna has been El Prez since the group started in 2015. She's the one who introduces each meeting, liaises with our district, federation and the national WI groups and attempts to keep the ship in line with all things official WI.
Kate is one of our Veeps. Since the idea of the group first formed, Kate has been putting out our monthly newsletters, sorting our membership, and manning our email inbox. She's the one who signs you in with sunny smile at every meeting.
Jules is one of our Veeps and, from the first inklings of getting the group started has been supplying top-notch word play and design. She's the one who runs a whole load of subgroups and shouts out the raffle numbers - aaaaall the raffle numbers - at meetings.
Sarah is our Secretary and, oh boy, is she organised. Sarah deals with all correspondence on a district, local and national level (and there is a lot), shares all the necessary info with the group, and keeps in-depth notes of all of our meetings. She's the one who mans Secretary's Table each month and updates us with all the WI goings on.
Marion is our Treasurer - the keeper of the WI purse strings! She looks after all of our financial activities, pays all our bills and keeps us legit with federation payments. She's the one who collects your subs payments, and manages not to tear her hair out while doing so!
Louise is Sarah's right-hand-woman and takes up Secretary duties when needed. She's our Resolutions Rep and keeps us informed about the voting process and how we can support the chosen resolutions. She's also the one who books us celebrity speakers like it's no big deal.
Krista helps Marion out with all finance-related activities. She's the one who gives you a receipt for your subs payments and greets you with her sunny smile at sign in.
Lila is the newest member of our committee, having been voted in last May. Since then she has seriously upped our events game, organising all kinds of fun and games for the group.
Speaker Helper & Special Events
Louise looks after our speakers at meetings, making sure they are comfortable and have everything they need. She also organises special events for our gang including our legendary annual Christmas carol sing-a-long.
Subgroups & Merch
Caro co-ordinates the activities of our group's many sub-groups, and lends a hand to anyone who wants to start up a new group. She also develops all of our merchandise - stay tuned for new products!
Emma looks after membership info for our whole gang, keeping details up to date on the very official WI database. She also LOVES the raffle, and takes great joy in manning the raffle table every month.
