Call for nominations for KASK Committee

Also we need more KASK  members to take a turn on our committee. A strong team (committee) is really important for the survival of KASK and to carry on the important work we do with education, safety, training – as well as growing our member base with fresh ideas and energy and internal governance. The main time commitment is to attend an online (Skype) meeting on the first Monday of the month for an hour or so. If you or someone you know would like to be a committee member, please get in touch before Friday and I am happy to talk through in more detail before any commitments are made.
The contact details of the committee members can be found here. We are always open to your comments and input and feel free to contact me any time.
