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 - they do not have designated 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 there is a system in place to avoid volunteer 'burn out'. 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 one year, two years time?
One other point to remember - BASOC has many experienced people; at the moment they might not take on a specific role. However they are always there to advise and mentor volunteers, please just ask!
