You may recall a year ago when I wrote a blog post about going to the Vintage Motocross Club of WA AGM and somehow leaving as president. Well today is my last day as president and I must admit I'm quite relieved that it's over. I really had no idea what I was doing and felt like I was playing catch up all year.
You see I'm the kind of person who likes documentation - give me some instructions and I can make anything work, but I had very little information when I started as president. One of the first thing I did was organise all of the records (I was a records manager in a previous life) and then I discovered we were required to update our constitution and do a risk management plan this year. Well that was right up my alley and so I divided the tasks among the committee and we got it all done. In fact we'll be voting on the updates to the constitution at tonight's AGM. I have a wonderful procedures manual to hand over to the new committee - whether they read it is entirely up to them!
I also discovered we were low on officials for our race meetings so we arranged some training sessions to increase those numbers.
In terms of the racing, well my bike hasn't been running particularly well all year, and the one time it did, I fell off and chopped off the tip of my left index finger! So really not the greatest years. Luckily my finger has healed nicely and I only had a couple of weeks when I couldn't type with two hands.
I'm looking forward to next year when I can go back to just being a member and helping out when needed! Now I'd better go and finish writing my handover report. 🙂
