Club Welfare Officer and new Club Policy Documents
As part of the new LTA club registration process, the club committee is required to appoint the new committee position of Welfare Officer, and also to produce a series of new club policy documents. We are very pleased to report that Steve Lynch has taken up the Welfare Officer position, following an approach from the committee.
As a long-standing and popular member, we are sure he will be very good in this role. The purpose of the Welfare Officer position is to be a key point of contact for any member who has any matters or concern relating to the club. The LTA's expectation is that the person appointed will be approachable, tactful, discreet, a good listener, caring, and with the ability to resolve any conflict that might arise. We are, of course, hoping that the role will will not need to come into play.
We already have a friendly, welcoming, inclusive and relaxed club, and every member has a responsibility to ensure that the club continues to offer a safe and friendly environment for everyone. It's worth adding that the role is primarily aimed at matters of a serious nature - not things like linecall disputes. If you want to email Steve about any matters there is a dedicated email: email@example.com
