NATS has been around as a successful club for years and holds a yearly AGM each March to discuss club matters and to elect a Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and Rides’ Coordinator. For the 2017 – 2017 year, the roles are elected as follows:
Chairman: Matt Gregory
Treasurer: Chris McMurray
Secretary: Vicky McMurray
Rides’ Co-ordinator: Lucy Chilvers
Where the £5 goes:
It pays for club insurance
Administration costs (eg stamps and membership cards plus any website / domain costs etc)
At each AGM, whilst a small amount of cash will be retained as a surplus into the next year to ensure costs are covered.
NATS has made the decision to reduce membership to £5 and that the membership fee will now cover a period of 5 years running from 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2022. The membership fee will be the same irrespective of what time of year, or in which year, you join. This will be reviewed at the AGM in 2022.
