Plea!

The Society is looking for a Secretary and a Fundraising Committee Chairman.

The role of Secretary is to sit on the Management Committee for monthly meetings, sorting correspondence, taking Minutes, applying for Production Licences and sorting out the Production Team's Contracts.

The role of the Fundraising Committee Chairman is to raise the much needed funds for the Society to continue and to ensure things like the maintenance of our HQ has money available. The Social Committee raise money from the Members to use for the Members, like subsidising a Theatre trip,  but the Fundraising Committee raise money from outside the Society for the Society.

Both roles are for one year but you get the opportunity to re-stand at the Annual General Meeting.

If you or someone you know is interested, please contact David Thompson, Vice Chairman via email: stage@c-m-t-s.co.uk or by phone: 01255 679579.
