Are you interested in volunteering for Bedford and County? Michael Headley, who has been our membership secretary for some time, is stepping down, and so we are looking for somebody new to look after this side of the club.
Membership secretary is an admin, backoffice role, but it is essential for the club. It will be particularly imporant as the club tries to encourage new members (particularly youngsters) when the current restrictions are eased. It is a role that you can do in your own time. It involves maintaining a database of members, updating the England Athletics portal with our members' information, keeping stakeholders such as coaches and Team Managers up-to-date about membership changes, and also complying with Data Protection legislation. Michael also maintains the Mailchimp emailing system. There tends to be a lot of work to do in April, when annual memberships renew, and it is a little quieter at other times.
