The sign of a healthy club is having elections and all committee positions are up for grabs.

To be nominated for a role, you need to find another WTMC member to nominate you by email to and then you need to reply to accept the nomination. Nominations close 5 April 2023.

Non-Committee roles

The table below notes the non-committee roles already filled and those where we still require volunteers. 

We are always interested in spreading the load, so if you think you can fill these roles or wish to assist the club in any other capacity, please email .

Voting procedures

For Committee positions where only one candidate is proposed, votes will be taken by a show of hands for those in person (observed by the Secretary). For those on-line, this may be done visually or via the chat (observed by the Technology Officer). 

For other matters requiring a vote, for people attending in person we will have a ballot paper to fill out. The Secretary will collect and count these. For people attending via Google Hangouts, votes can be cast via email. The Technology Officer will count these and report them to the Secretary. If you intend to attend online and vote by email, now is a good time to check that the Club has your correct email address. If that has changed, please let the Membership Officer know by mailing .

Members unable to make it to the AGM may nominate a proxy if they wish to vote on their behalf. The proxy can be the meeting chair or any other member eligible to vote. You can (but do not have to) specify to the proxy how you wish them to vote on all or some matters. To be eligible to vote, members must be financially current and aged 18 years plus (as of the AGM date).

If you are unable to attend the AGM, either virtually or in-person and wish to vote by proxy, please advise the Chair of who your proxy is by emailing . Proxy votes must be received at least 24 hours before the start of the AGM.
