We’re holding our first ever Annual General Meeting at 7:00pm on Thursday February 7th at the King’s Head pub. We’re going to discuss our plan for the inaugural season and elect a board of directors to run the group.
If you’d like to get involved on the board you can send your name and the position for which you’re applying to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is 11:59pm Sunday February 3, 2019.
And if you don’t want to be on the board but still want to pitch in we’ll have opportunities for volunteers to join the committees we’re creating. We’ll focus on things like game day operations, community outreach, merchandise, and communications. We’ll share more details at the meeting.
