The Victorian Oarsmen & Womens Association (VOWA) requires assitance

Please see the below message:
On behalf of the Victorian Oarsmen & Womens Association Inc (VOWA) we wish to appeal for volunteers to join the committee & fill the executive positions of President, Secretary & possibly Treasurer as well.
This is a very old rowing association whose aims are “To promote, maintain and renew old associations and to enhance the spirit existing amongst those who have participated in rowing and to foster, improve & perpetuate the sport in any legitimate manner including assisting clubs & interstate or International crews.”
Currently we have approx 80 financial members & approx 200 who have lapsed in recent years.
The former executive has served for many years & no longer have the time or energy to provide the leadership that the organization desperately needs.
Although there are only 4 committee meetings per year including the AGM the new executive needs to reinvigorate the association by updating the constitution and meeting other regulatory requirements which would not be too demanding.
More importantly the new committee needs to promote and renew memberships (currently $10 per year) and to investigate & implement new ideas to try to meet the aims of the organization.
If anyone is interested in taking up this challenge then please contact Glenn Bottrell email [email protected] or speak to Mark Brown, Jim Skidmore, Stephen Pennicott, Tim Catford, Kathy Wilmot, Ian McWilliam or any other members / former members of VOWA and they can pass your details onto Glenn.
If we cannot fill these positions then we will have to wind up this formerly great organization.
