2019 Management Committee - Expressions of Interest
Dear WARC Members,
As you are aware your club is a special place we can all enjoy and be proud of. We are coming to the conclusion of another very busy and successful pennant season with many operational and on water achievements.
The club relies very heavily on the voluntary contribution from a dedicated group of individuals who take the responsibility for many things that happen every day to keep the club operating as efficiently as possible. Each year we look to fill management committee positions so we can continue to successfully plan growth, strategic direction and most importantly relieve the hard working members who have made exceptional commitment throughout their term on the committee.
I would be very grateful if you would consider joining the team on the 2019 Management Committee to lead the club for the year ahead. We need your help to deliver on the direction and vision outlined in our 2015 – 2019 Strategic Plan.
