Committee Members

The Society is a Registered Charity and is managed by an elected Executive Committee (“The Committee”).  The Committee consists of:

  • Chairman
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • 6 Ordinary Committee Members

Each member serves a term of one year, elected at each Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in July each year by the voting membership.
The Committee is made up entirely of unpaid volunteers.

Due to COVID-19, the normal voting procedure could not be held and the existing 2019/2020 Committee retained their posts for 2020/21 as follows:

  • Chairman: VACANT
  • Secretary: Neil Graham
  • Treasurer: Neil Graham
  • Ordinary Member: Mark Tissington
  • Ordinary Member: Howard Watson
  • Ordinary Member: Phil Scaling
  • Ordinary Member: Jonathan Mortimer
  • Ordinary Member: VACANT
  • Ordinary Member: VACANT

The society constitution allows for a maximum of 6 ordinary Committee member posts. The Committee currently has a vacant Chairman post.  If any society member wishes to join the Committee then please contact the Secretary.

Any member can be added to the Committee at any time and the Committee can call an Extraordinary General Meeting to elect a Chairman.
In the absence of an elected Chair, the Committee member will take it in turns to act as Chairman at the Committee meetings and AGM.

The Committee meets approximately every quarter for formal business meetings.
Sub-committees liaise more frequently to coordinate events, such as public outreach and our annual star camp at Dalby Forest: “StarFest”.
