Committee 2016 - 2017

These are the people that run your club! The committee is split into several different roles for each aspect of the club and its events. In practice the roles are blurred and committee get stuck into everything! Committee members are elected at our yearly AGM in February. From then onwards, the new and old committee members work together until the end of the spring term.
