What makes BASOC work and who does what?
All volunteer run organisations have a number of people who help to keep the club functioning. In BASOC we have four named and elected committee posts - Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Junior Rep. There are other elected committee members who don't necessarily have specific roles.
The committee cannot - and should not - do all the other roles we need to keep BASOC going. The club is fortunate in that people do volunteer to take on roles, thank you to all for this. As a club we should ensure that volunteers are recognised for their contributions and that everyone's experience of volunteering is a positive one. Everyone is able to do something, but we all want to know what we are committing to. To help with this, the committee has written 'Role descriptions' for all the things which need to be done. As part of this there is a rough estimate of the time you would be donating to the club.
Have a look through the roles - are there any you would like to volunteer for just now? Are there any you would like to offer to do in future years?
The list of all roles and what is involved is currently being reviewed as people settle in to their new roles. We've also come up with a set of goals, both for the club and the committee. Any suggestions or updates are welcome.
One other point to remember - BASOC has many experienced people who are always there to advise and mentor volunteers, please just ask!
