New club roles and calendar for 2020

Our demonstration at the 2019 Sakura Picnic Day

Thanks to everyone who put their hands up to take on various roles within the club. It's really heartening to know that people are willing to support the club with their expertise. It's also great to have people sharing their ideas with me on how to improve things at the club. It means that you're all thinking deeply about the way things run and are inspired to make things better.

These are the people and the projects/roles assigned so far. The nature and the duration of each will be largely defined by the people undertaking them. However I will be in touch with each of you to offer some guidelines on the sort of things to expect, particularly in connection with jobs like Secretary. I imagine the ongoing roles will be for one year unless we decide otherwise.

These positions are not exclusive or set-in-stone, so if you want to offer to work jointly on any of these tasks or projects, feel free to speak with any of the people below.

Incorporation review  -  Larry
Website review   -   Andrew E.
Musha shugyo: Sydney 2020, Japan 2021  -  Kim, Chie, Anna
"Jigeiko cards" -  Chie, Kyouka

Communications Secretary  -  Andrew D.
Competition Manager; VKR Committee member  -  Mick
Membership and Social Secretary   -  Sean

One role that hasn't been covered is someone to work with Yvonne on investigating and applying for grants. This role might become clearer after Larry completes the review of incorporation. But if you were thinking of helping out in this area let me know.

I have updated the calendar page on the website. You will also have received an invitation to the Google calendar version in your email. If you have an android phone then I think this should sync fairly easily with your calendar app (I hope!). I can also export an iCal version for iPhone users. Let me know if you would like me to send you that link.

The 2020 calendar has all term dates, beginners' courses and gasshuku dates for next year. I will wait to get other dates from the VKR on things like gradings, competitions and seminars.
