Every year a new committee is selected from within the team during the AGM. Every role is up for grabs and a democratic vote is used to pick the best candidate for the job which the candidate will fulfil for the new season.
This gives the opportunity for paddlers to get involved and build on the work that the past committee have done to make the club bigger and better than ever. Taking on a role with the committee is hard work but is also a very rewarding experience as you will be helping to run the biggest dragonboat club in London.
The committee is split into the following sections:
Responsible for setting overall club vision for the year, (based on feedback from members at AGM) and ensuring safety and legalities are all complied with. The management committee will not have the authority to overrule decisions taken by the general committee but are separated to create a hierarchy of accountability within the club. In essence if there should be any legal issues encountered in any respect it is the management committee who will have to answer for this and deal with the consequences.
