Coventry Society Committee

The Coventry Society is run by a small group of enthusiasts called "The Committee" or more formally "The Executive Committee". The committee is made up of four formal positions (Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary) plus an additional six committee members, making a total of ten. We also have some "informal" positions which are filled by volunteers on the committee but are not formally nominated (we have a minute secretary, a second Vice Chair and in theory a membership secretary - although this role has been undertaken by the Treasurer for some years). 

The Coventry Society is a registered charity and the committee members are the trustees of the charity and their names are formally notified to the Charity Commission each year.  

As at January 2018 the existing committee members are:

Keith Draper - chairman

Paul Maddocks - Vice Chairman

Colin Walker - Treasurer and Vice Chairman

John Payne - Secretary

Terry Kenny - Minute Secretary

Les Fawcett - Committee Member

Four vacancies. 

The committee is elected each year at the AGM. All committee members stand down before the meeting and may be re-elected onto the committee. 

All members may nominate someone or be nominated themselves to join the committee and if there are not sufficient nominations then members may be seconded to join the committee for the forthcoming year. All nominations need to be seconded by another member, either before the AGM or at the meeting itself. 

The 2018 AGM is set for Monday 9th April 2018. Nominations for officers or committee positions need to be submitted by Sunday 25th March. You can download a nomination form here.

Many members of the existing committee are standing down this year and we desperately need some new blood to support the development of the Society. Please consider carefully whether you are able to provide more support for the society, either as a committee member or as an active volunteer.
