Fancy joining the committee?

As we approach the branch AGM, we are looking for volunteers to join the committee that does the day to day running of the CAMRA branch – the committee for the new year ahead gets voted in at the AGM.

At present we do not have enough volunteers to fill every role on the committee and have a small bunch of old hands that do more than one job to keep things ticking over. There is a feeling that the branch needs some new people with fresh ideas and enthusiasm to shake things up, bring some passion back to the branch and in turn get more people involved across the board. Any new volunteers that get voted into roles will of course enjoy support and guidance from the ‘old hands’.

The committee positions include
Membership Secretary
Social Secretary
Pubs Officer (including What Pub database management)
Heritage Pub Protection Officer
Beer Matters Editor
Stakeholder/Local politician relationship
Young Members Co-ordinator (including University Real Ale Society Liaison)

Aside from the committee, we also look for people wishing to help out with roles such as co-ordinating our Pub of the Year and Pub of the Month competitions, the selection of pubs for the Good Beer Guide and writing articles for Beer Matters magazine. We also still have some vacancies for Brewery Liaison Officers.
