A message to non-club cavers

28 October 2016

At our next Annual General Meeting (11th March 2017, Hellifield Village Institute, 10am) we will, for the first time, be electing a member to our Committee the role of who will be to provide a voice for those who cave outside of a club. This representative (called the Individual Caver (IC) representative) can be any BCA member caver (CIM or DIM). They will be elected NOT by the voting clubs, but instead by all BCA DIMs present at the meeting. They will be expected to try to attend the three Committee meetings that we have each year (usually in Hellifield) and to provide input and proposals for how the CNCC can be working to better serve the needs of all cavers, and not just those within clubs. If you are interested in standing for this role, you need to submit notification of your intention to stand to the CNCC Secretary by 14th January, with a statement of why you are standing for the role that can be circulated. You would ideally need to be able to attend the AGM itself. If you would like to discuss the role then please feel free to drop me an email. Any BCA DIMs who are interested in voting for this representative are welcome to come the meeting (bring your BCA card to hold up for voting with). A list of all applicants will be available in the agenda which will be on our website six weeks before the meeting (by 15th January).
