What is the role of the President ?

The role of the Président will change from previous years. Until now the Président has been expected to take on all major administration requirements, however from 2016 / 2017 season an administration position has been created within the team, which reduces the tasks required of the Président position.

 

This means the President can get on with leading the Club.

The new Président is expected to….

  • Be a focal point and spokesperson for the club
  • Lead in the strategic direction based on members input
  • Be concerned with image and perception of club from the exterieur
  • Manage the delegation of tasks
  • Be dedicated to the team on a regular basis, often in contact with club members

 

What is the role of the Administration Role ?

It has been agreed with the 2015 / 2016 leadership team that Nick will take on the paid administration position, (facilitated through provision of a 4 year subvention from the CNDS).

We are please to announce that Nick has accepted this role, and is happy to work closely with the newly appointed Président. This new structure will compliment Nick’s existing ties and commitments within the Ligue IDF de Triathlon and the FFTRI, and improves the position of the Club.
