DO YOU WANT MY JOB?!  Because you can have it! All it takes is for you to win the hearts, minds, and votes of your fellow paddlers at this year’s elections!

On Thursday 2nd May (Week 2 Term 3) we will be heading to Kelsey’s to conduct the important business of appointing new club members into exec roles for the next year. More on this to come, but you MUST wear formal wear or a suitable alternative will be provided. You will also need to attend if you want to be able to cast your vote on any prospective candidates. (If you are concerned that you may not be able to attend the night, please contact a member of the current exec.)

In total there will be 17 positions available across both clubs, these are as follows:

  • President (Canoe/Polo): Organise and run everything in the club.
  • Vice-President (Canoe only): Help the President organise and run everything in the club.
  • Secretary (Canoe/Polo): Take minutes, organise the President's life, order club merchandise.
  • Treasurer (Canoe/Polo): Manage the finances of the club.
  • Kit Secretary (Canoe/Polo): Maintain and purchase new kit.
  • Coaching Secretary (Canoe/Polo): Oversee the training and development of members.
  • Tour Secretary (Canoe only): Organise Scotland Tour.
  • Tournament Secretary (Polo only): Organise Warwick Tournaments and National/Regional leagues.
  • Social Secretaries x2 (Joint): Organise weekly socials and post-session pub trips.
  • Media Monkey (Joint): Keep the website and social media up to date.
  • Charities, Development, and Outreach Officer - This is a new exec role and will only be opened once all other positions have been filled.

https://warwickcanoe.uk/site/execpositions/ has a good run down of what these positions involve but feel free to speak to any exec member if you have further questions.

All candidates will be expected to perform a Canoe themed song/poem and a joke on the night. If you intend to run for an exec position, please email your intention to run to the appropriate current president, although decisions to run can be changed on the night (and yes, if you are intending to run for a joint position, you should email both presidents):

president<at>warwickcanoe.co.uk

president<at>polo.warwickcanoe.co.uk

Candidates running for President will also be expected to produce a short manifesto (around 200 words) detailing why you want to run and what you want to bring to the club. This should also be emailed to the current president by the end of the Easter Holidays.

Manifestos will be released early in Term 3 on the website news section https://warwickcanoe.uk/site/news

If you are considering running for exec, rest assured that it is one of the most worthwhile and fulfilling things you can do with your time. You will have a great ability to shape the direction of the club and enable the club to offer the same or better experiences to those you have had yourself. And if that’s not enough, exec gives you access to a regular supply of cake.

Happy democracy,

Lara, Hannah, and all of the joint exec

The Vice President is also responsible for tracking down the ceremonial canoe artifacts, specifically The Egg of Mystery and The Coconut of Wonder.
