Committees

Work of the Management Committee.

The WCSS Committee is elected by the members to manage the affairs of the society throughout the year. Any WCSS member wishing to stand for election to the committee may do so by formal application not less than 14 days before the AGM. Applications consist of a resume accompanied by a proposer and seconder (also members of WCSS).

The Committee usually has two full meetings in place per year, one preceding the AGM and one after the shooting season ends (so, will usually be during February). A further meeting or two may be held on an ‘as required’ basis.

However, WCSS is a busy Society and committee members are involved on a fairly constant basis, communicating through the committee’s closed Facebook group, be e-mail and in telephone discussions. Often committee members are involved with meeting other clubs and organisations, canine health bodies and game fair organisers. Committee members usually bear their own expenses unless circumstances are essential.
