At the end of April, we will be electing our new Committee for the coming year. This year all positions are available- a nomination form will be sent nearer the date for the AGM but meanwhile, can we ask you to look at the job descriptions and see if there is a role for you.
Please do think about stepping up over the coming weeks. SILC has an awesome reputation for both great fun social events and helping out in the local community but without volunteers none of this can happen. Get in touch with our Chair, Jane, on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to know more or just to have a chat about what the job involves.
