July 17, 2016 12:00 am client
The 10th annual general meeting of the Official Leinster Supporters Club (OLSC) will take place at 2pm on Saturday, 6th August at the Penthouse Bar that is located upstairs in the Horse Show House (opposite the RDS).
An election for the 2016/17 committee will take place at the AGM and nominations for the seven committee members are now open. Each committee member will serve the Club in a volunteer/unpaid capacity.
The record date for the AGM is 21 June 2016.
As many supporters will be aware our support base has grown substantially over the years, with this the role of the OLSC has also increased with work now taking place both on and outside of match day. All season ticket holders are automatically members of the Official Leinster Supporters Club (OLSC).
The role of a committee member won’t see you mingling with players but it will allow you to help supporters of the team far and wide. We currently do this in a number of ways, some of these are as follows:
While the club carries out a number of tasks, below are the keys ones that potential incoming committee members should be aware of:
*Organising flagging and other blue activities at key games both home and away
*Providing travel information to help supporters follow the team on the road
*Running of Interprovincial buses to Connacht, Munster and Ulster away during the season
*Assisting supporters abroad with providing broadcast information for every game
*Running the OLSC shop on match days and dispatch of mail orders outside of games
*Assisting with fundraising activities in conjunction with the chosen Leinster Rugby charity partners
*Organisation of supporter events in The Laighin Out including video filming and writing website content of same
*More information and examples of our work can be found in the supporters section of www.leinsterrugby.ie
Those wishing to be nominated should be aware of the following requirements:
* You must be a season ticket holder as of 7 June 2016 (for the season 2016/17)
* You must have been a season ticket holder as of 1 January 2016 (Season 2015/16)
* While working before and/or after every home game is not required there is a rota in place to spread the work evenly around the entire committee.
* You should be available to operate at least one of the Club’s buses (to Belfast, Galway and Limerick/Cork) during the season.
* You should be able to access the internet at least five times per week as we operate a web based forum to discuss issues outside of match day, we’ll provide training for this
* Ideally you will have assisted us in the past as one of our volunteers so that you are familiar with some of the things we do.
Ongoing commitment is required from a committee member. If you can’t provide this, you can still help the Club. Join our volunteer list by sending your details to email@example.com We’ll contact you when we need assistance and you simply reply when you can help (no on- going commitment required).
Motions for consideration in relation to amending our constitution are also called for at this time, these must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with confirmation that the proposer will be attending the AGM in person.
The deadline for the submission of both committee nominations and motions by email to email@example.com is 5pm, Friday, 22 July 2016.
