3. Summary of proposed changes to the Ramsbottom Running Club Constitution:
a. It is proposed that the RRC constitution is amended and a slightly evolved and a broader role of Welfare and Wellbeing Officer is created (in place of the RRC Juniors Welfare Officer role) and that this new role is included as part of the club's committee. The Welfare & Wellbeing Officer’s role will be to promote a general sense of positive wellbeing amongst the club’s membership and support the Club Welfare Officer to promote the club’s policy and procedures for the protection of children and vulnerable adults via the club’s Welfare Policy.
b. It is proposed that a new role of Communications Officer is created and this role be included as part of the club's committee. The rationale for this role is the need for someone with the relevant skills to develop and implement a strategic communications plan, ensuring a joined up approach is taken across all of the club’s communications platforms. The role will also require the holder to proactively identify opportunities to promote the club’s activities both internally and externally.
If you have any objections to the proposed changes to the constitution you must respond in writing (firstname.lastname@example.org) by midday on Sunday 21st February 2021.
