*Captains: Please pass this message on to anyone in your club who may be
interested in CUCBC Committee Positions*


Hi all


With the May Bumps fast approaching and the academic year almost over, we
are starting to think about appointing next year's CUCBC Executive
Committee. There are four open positions, all of which are open to *any*
member of the College boat clubs. Involvement with the CUCBC committee is
fun and rewarding and a good way of giving something back to College rowing
in Cambridge, so if you are enthusiastic about college rowing and would like
to get involved on the organisational side, please do consider applying for
a position.


While there are a number of defined jobs, responsibilities (particularly
organising and umpiring the major races) tend to be shared between committee
members who will work together throughout the year.


If you wish to run for any of these positions, please send a brief manifesto
outlining your experience and what you will bring to the position to Dan
Wilkins, CUCBC Honorary Secretary (dan at cucbc.org), by Sunday 3rd June. I
also strongly recommend getting involved in umpiring this year's May Bumps
(details of which to follow shortly).


Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to know more.



CUCBC Honorary Secretary


This position will be elected at the pre-May Bumps Captains' Meeting (Sunday
10 June) by the College Captains. Candidates will give a brief speech to the
Captains before they vote.


Current: Dan Wilkins (dan at cucbc.org)


The Honorary Secretary is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day running
of the CUCBC committee; organisation of CUCBC events (Uni IVs, Lents, SBR,
Mays) and day-to-day administration of College rowing. This includes issuing
fines and dealing with straight forward appeals, compiling agendas and
minutes for the Captains' meetings, arranging marshalling rotas and
organising the start of year LBCs' course. You will also be the Captains'
main representative on the Executive Committee. The Honorary Secretary will
generally take responsibility for organising one of the CUCBC events, while
the others will be distributed between committee members. While there are a
number of responsibilities, they are spread out over the year and completed
with the help of the other committee members. This is a rewarding job for an
energetic and enthusiastic person!



Junior Treasurer


This position will be co-opted by the current Executive Committee.


Current: Tom Grimble (juniortreasurer at cucbc.org)


The junior treasurer takes responsibility for the day-to-day running of
CUCBC's finances, including drawing up and distributing bills to the College
Boat Clubs and preparing the budget with the Senior Treasurer.



Events Secretary


This position (1 or 2 persons, as deemed appropriate) will be co-opted by
the current Executive Committee.


Current: Dave Lambert (events at cucbc.org)


The events secretary helps with the organisation and running of CUCBC races.
While overall responsibility for the CUCBC events will be divided between
committee members (so you will not have to do everything!), the events
secretary helps out with arranging umpires and organising and distributing
umpiring kit. You will also liase with the producers of the Bumps programmes
and arrange the presentations and upkeep of the University medals and
trophies. A fun job if you want to get involved with running races on the


Coxes' Representative


This position will be elected at the May Bumps Coxes' Meetings (Sunday 10
June)  by the coxes.


Current: Mat Bryan (coxing at cucbc.org)


The coxes' rep aids the development of coxes within the College boat clubs,
including arranging the novice coxes' meeting in Michaelmas term as well as
giving the pre-Bumps coxes' briefings and any other ideas you may have!



In addition to these positions, the CUCBC Committee also comprises the
Honorary Secretaries of the three University clubs (CUBC, CUWBC, CULRC).
Each of these clubs have their own election procedures which will be or have
already been circulated by the current Honorary Secretaries.


We look forward to hearing from you!





Dan Wilkins

CUCBC Honorary Secretary
