break a leg, break a boat, break a bridge
Why are you applying for this position?
Despite some hiccups along the way, including a small hiatus due to a broken leg, I am a committed member of KCLBC. In taking on this role I hope to be able to continue the efforts made by Maisie and the rest of committee, and to take on a greater role within the club in my final year of university. I am organised and fair.
What will you bring to the role and why do you feel you are suitable?
I am fair, but simultaneously will not take nonsense from anyone. I am very organised and love a good spreadsheet, just ask to look at my weekly budget! I am effective in communicating and have experience in organising the finances for charitable events. Additionally, I am approachable and always willing to talk through concerns that anyone has. I will support the captain and am prepared to take on additional responsibilities if their workload becomes too intense.
What do you intend to do during your year in office?
I intend to create a document which will surmise the expected times for payments throughout the year to the boat club from each individual. Hopefully this will enable people to budget for these expenses and not shock anyone when they do come around, furthermore it is an additional attempt to limit late payments from people.
Additionally, I would work with the social secs to create a policy to ban people from the upcoming socials if they do not meet the deadlines for payments without an excuse (excluding laziness etc). Yes, it sounds like I may be a bit of a pain, but at the end of the day I will work to keep KCLBC’s finances in check to ensure that everyone has the best time possible.
Finally, I am committed to maintaining a friendly environment within the boat club and ensuring that everyone feels welcomed, particularly new members.
