Dear Scarborough Swimming Club Member,
The management of the affairs of each Swimming Club is delegated to an elected Committee, and as such all members of our club who are over the age of 16 years old are now invited to contribute to the election of the Committee Officers.
To contribute to the selection we invite each member of the club over 16 years of age to vote for one Chairperson, one Honorary Secretary and one Finance Officer.
As the required number of members of the swimming club have applied and been nominated to be on the Committee, they will all represent the club.
If you would like to vote, please request a form via the the email firstname.lastname@example.org and a voting form will be sent to you.
We would be grateful if forms can be completed and returned by midnight on Monday 25th January. The forms will remain sealed and will be collected to an independent adjudicator the following morning for the vote count.
With very best wishes
The Membership Team
