Treasurer’s Role Vacant
London Region is looking to fill the role of Treasurer on the London Region Committee. This is an important post and preferably will be filled by someone from the fencing community but this is not a pre-requisite. It is not necessary to have an accounting or financial background but it would be clearly helpful. This is not a full time role by any means; a description is set out below. There are approximately five committee meetings each year which it is hoped the Treasurer could attend; the busiest time is around the three or so Competitions organised by the Region.
Role of Treasurer
Entry is now closed and we look forward to seeing all competitors next weekend. Details of all check in times will be published shortly.
