At the 2012 Annual General Meeting, we will be electing members to serve on the Steering Committee which meets regularly to discuss IWCS operations. As in every year, all positions are open. We encourage you to ask for more information if you are interested in standing for a position.
According to our club bylaws, we must elect three members to the Vorstand (Core Committee). The Vorstand is responsible for the overall organization and operations of the IWCS. They are responsible for making all final decisions and keeping the IWCS in good stand with the German authorities. Our Vorstand positions are:
- Chairperson (Vorsitzende)
- Vice Chairperson (Schriftführerin)
- Treasurer (Schatzmeisterin)
Additionally, we can elect more members to the extended steering committee. These positions are in charge of other important tasks needed for the club to function. All steering committee members meet once a month for planning purposes. This year we would like to elect the following additional committee members if we have willing candidates:
- Charity Officer
- Activities Planning Coordinator
- Mother’s Corner Coordinator
- Public Relations/Cross-Promotions Officer – volunteer still needed!
- Member Communications Officer
- Membership Coordinator
Although all positions are open for any member to put their name in for, several of the positions already have volunteers. If you are interested in any of the above positions or have more questions, please contact Emily Born using the form below.
If you are not quite feeling up to an elected position but feel this is the right time for you to step up and help out, we will need lots of support in our charity and activities planning committees this year. Let us know how you can help!
