Administrative help needed

As we have been so successful in attracting new members to the club and encouraging EA membership, the renewal process has become increasingly difficult for one person (currently Niki Fulstow) to manage.

The EA memberships need to be recorded on the EA system by 31 May 2016 for them to remain valid. We are currently investigating how we can change the process so that more than one person can access both systems that need to be updated.

We've already have an offer of help from Tricia Baillie-Horler (thanks Tricia) and we are looking for support from two more people during the renewal period.

Please, if you think that you may be able to spare some time to help Niki, and the club, let Jim know at jim.wotton@westonac.co.uk.

Thank you.
