These are the people elected at our annual AGM who help to run Isis CC on a day-to-day basis.
Everyone does it for the love of it, they are all voluntary positions - getting people out on the water is
just something we all enjoy doing!
Each member of the committee provides a report at the annual AGM about their activities throughout the year.
Simon recently took over the mantle of Chair from Penny, one of the club's co-founders. Simon is the brains behind Isis CC. Should we be worried? Probably. He spends a lot of time organising meetings with the committee members and coaches to ensure that all the cogs of our well oiled machine are in working order, and cracks the whip if they aren't. Simon's relaxed and friendly demeanour sets the tone for Isis CC.
Liam is in charge of the Isis CC purse strings. He keeps our accounts up-to-date with an impressive spreadsheet detailing all our income and expenditure. Liam also manages all the club's membership and course fees. He's the person we go to if we want to buy new resources for the club.
Niamh is the first point of contact for the club if you have a general enquiry. She'll make sure your email is forwarded to the correct person faster than lightening. If you have a general query, and you don't know who to call, Niamh is probably your woman.
Poor Liam, not only does he manage Isis CC's accounts, but he also keeps track of our members too. Liam is the person to go to for a membership form or if you have a query about joining the club. He liaises with Simon about the courses to make sure that all our members are present and correct.
We try to introduce lots of people to paddlesport each year and this is thanks to Simon's meticulous planning of our courses, and making sure we have enough coaches and helpers on the water to keep you safe. Simon also coaches on the courses himself to make sure they run smoothly. If you want to join one of our courses, contact Simon first to check that it will be suitable for you, and that we have space left, because they are very popular.
You are currently reading this thanks to the handiwork of Gwyl. He deals with all things techie and regularly updates the website with our trip reports. If you spot anything that needs updating then Gwyl is the person to email.
The first point of contact for any personal safety or welfare issues. Penny also helps members with coaching development and sets up courses like FSRT and First Aid. She liaises with Sea Scouts and coach course providers and helps with securing grants for coaching courses. She also brings kayakers up to scratch with solo canoe skills, which are necessary for L1UKCC and beyond.
Where would we be without our team of loyal and very hardworking volunteer coaches and helpers?
