The Chair (chairperson or chirpy for short) is responsible for the general direction of the group, as well as ensuring that everyone else is doing what they are supposed to.

The Secretary takes the minutes of committee meetings, liaises with the Ramblersí Association, answers new member enquiries and sends info to those who join. Sara is also responsible for regular checking of the group email and a million other really useful things that she is sure were not on the job description when she agreed to take on the role!
The Treasurer handles the group's finances, taking care of all transactions involved with the group. The role includes preparing monthly statements for the committee and the Annual Report to the RA, as well as ensuring the group maintains a working capital and remains in the black.

The Walks Co-ordinator is responsible for conjuring up a full programme of walks every three months. This involves the production of 39 walks on 13 weekends while keeping 45 walk leaders and 167 members happy. The ideal candidate for this post would be an ageing IT contractor from the Hope Valley who just drinks more wine and starts saying "lah lah lah" in a loud voice when it all starts going wrong. Well, it's worked so far.
The Weekends Away Co-ordinator job is to co-ordinate the weekends away, selecting the accommodation, selling places, collecting the money, organising the booking, planning and running the weekend.
