To facilitate the above, Paolo gave a demo of the membership form on-line.  

Ken shared a list of members whose payments were overdue. The following actions were agreed :

Action : Paolo to send link to application form for committee members to ‘trial’ in the next 2 weeks. (Feedback to Paolo)

Action : Ken to provide list of suspended members to committee members and coaches to ensure that these ex members are not attending training sessions and entering races as affiliated to LH.

Action : Ken to send out emails/letters to lapsed/suspended members.

Action : Barry to liaise with Ken, Paolo and Peter to discuss additional letter and to process feedback from committee members on the use of the new form. Form to be in place by August meeting.

Action : Barry to attempt to find ‘volunteer’.
