The Committee of Directors bears the responsibility for management of the Club and may co-opt members to assist the Committee who are Directors of the Club. The Committee delegates day-to-day management to the Club Secretary, who works to the Committee’s strategy and resolutions. Individual Directors have responsibility to the membership of the VSCC and are ambassadors of the Committee and its policy and resolutions.
The Committee comprises 17 Directors consisting of appointed officers and elected members as follows: President Elected by the currently serving Committee. Normally three years in office. Past President appointed at the end of his/her term as President. Past Past President appointed at the end of his/her term as Past President Editor appointed by the currently serving Committee Hon Treasurer appointed by the currently serving Committee 12 members elected by the membership on an annual basis.
The Club, by tradition, pays no expenses of the members of the Committee, nor does the Club pay for the accommodation costs of the Committee or provide any other benefits in their role as Directors. However, should a member of the Committee incur costs as organiser of an event, then expenses will be reimbursed under the arrangements for that event. The Editor of the Bulletin is excepted and receives fees for his work in enabling the publication of the Bulletin and an agreed arrangement for expenses.
Committee normally meets once per calendar month, except December, usually at the Club offices in Chipping Norton. Business for the Committee is assembled through the Secretary and/or President prior to each meeting. The Agenda and Minutes are circulated to Committee members, and those Past Presidents who are no longer Directors (i.e. not one of the 17 members) who may, by invitation, attend Committee Meetings from time to time. A précis of Committee business is normally published in the Club’s monthly Newsletter.
