ARE YOU a member of one of the many small clubs in our area?
Do you even know who, in your club are members of the committee?
At this time of the year there are many small clubs in this region that go through the process of electing their committee to run the club for the following year.
Small clubs rely on the efforts of these volunteers to carry out the duties needed to keep the club functioning.
These members bring years of life experience to their club and pass this experience onto the other members both by example and encouragement.
Your club could not function without the generous support of these local citizens willing to help.
They make the club the best it can be.

YOUR PRESIDENT is a member of this committee along with your Vice Presidents, Secretary and Treasurer.
A well organised and supportive committee will make the President’s role a breeze and the club will prosper and grow.
I’ve had the pleasure of being the President and Secretary of one of these small clubs over the past few years.
That club is the Happy Hunters Hill Toastmasters and we meet at Gladesville Sporties Club on Ryde Road.
Our club is made up of members that are keen to improve their public speaking skills.
I have been fortunate to have the support of a great committee.
They have organised the club’s activities in a very professional manner.
This covers booking the meeting rooms, preparing meeting agendas, conducting the meetings and packing up after the meeting.

ON BEHALF of the Happy Hunters Hill Toastmasters I would like to express my thanks to Nadia, Lynda, Daniel, Greg, John and Raphael for their support during a successful year at the club.
Our club is in good hands with members who are willing to step up and fill the roles required to keep the club functioning.
So next time you are in your club, whether a small or large organisation, seek out the committee members and express your thanks for their efforts and unbridled support.
Often these committee members go unheralded and we, as a community, should express a vote of thanks to them for their tireless efforts.
Persons interested in joining Happy Hunters Hill Toastmasters can contact myself on 9808-2774.
RAY MacLENNAN is Secretary of Happy Hunters Hill Toastmasters Club.
