Surf Committee - Applications Open

Do you dream of catching the perfect wave, want to help organise events and develop the surf scene in Scotland?

Now's your chance - applications are being invited for the SCA Surf Committee.

In line with the process set out in the Discipline Committee Terms of Reference, this is the first time the new 'application' system will take place. Here are the following key dates: 

01/02/2017: Invite applications
28/02/2017: Application deadline 
01/03/2017 - 14/03/2017: Applications reviewed by Appointments committee. NB. The role of Appointments committee is simply to check individuals meet the minimum criteria i.e. are SCA members, and also to liaise with the current (or most recent committee) to be sure the applicants are suitable i.e. have knowledge and experience of the discipline. The appointments committee do not shortlist  - everyone who meets this criteria goes forward. 
14/03/2017: Ballot (if req). NB. The ballot would only happen this year if there are more applicants than spaces (maximum spaces are 9) and this year all spaces are open. In future years it will typically be up to 3 spaces per year.

05/04/2017: Postal votes compiled and forwarded to meeting chair
