VOLUNTEER APPEAL MARCH 2016
From club secretary Nick Hume:
"BWF AC is seeking a number of Volunteers and two Volunteer Coordinators to assist with the smooth running of the club. The Coordinators will have responsibility for liaising with the Volunteers and the Committee/Event Organisers to ensure that tasks are completed as and when required. Click here for information on the Coordinator's role.
Advice and guidance will be provided to all volunteers. Click here for information on the Volunteer's role."
"It is more important than ever that Club Membership fees are paid sooner rather than later, as England Athletics (EA) and Competition Providers are checking whether athletes are affiliated and the Club does not pay EA until the relevant Membership fee is received.
It is vital that we avoid the situation that arose last year when some athletes were disqualified in T&F competition because of unpaid fees. Details of BWFAC's membership fees can be viewed
