The Wapping HC elections for the 2021/2022 season are now open!
The club is managed by the Executive (Exec) and Committee. All positions on the Exec and Committee must be filled by annual elections; the full list of positions is below.
All members are encouraged to get involved with the club's governance and operations - if you have any questions about what's involved, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We are particularly interested in applications for a second press/social media secretary to work alongside James Budgen, and a newsletter secretary to step in for Emily Wilford who helped launch the Back Post two seasons ago. Exec members pay zero-rate subs, while Committee members pay the concession rate of £160.
Nominations for all Exec and Committee roles are open until Thursday, 15 July 2021. Nominations must be seconded by one other WHC member. To put yourself forward for a role, please email firstname.lastname@example.org confirming your interest and copying the WHC member who seconds you for the role. Positions can be shared by two members.
Once nominations close on 15 July 2021, voting will be open to all members for one week until Thursday 22 July 2021. Results will be announced on Friday, 23 July 2021. A second round will commence on 23 July 2021 to fill any vacancies, with nominations open for one week until Friday, 30 July 2021, and voting open for a further week, until Friday, 6 August 2021.
