Vacant Director of finances

The UKWA seeks a Director of Finances, as with all other rolls this is a voluntary position.

Paul Robinson served as Director of Finance for many years on the UKWA Committee and his management of the finances has enabled the association to invest heavily in equipment over recent years which leaves our safety fleet in excellent condition.

The UKWA is therefore seeking a replacement volunteer Director of Finance to serve on its main committee. Paul has kindly provided a job description attached here JOB DESCRIPTION.

Should you be interested in volunteering you will not only be serving the UKWA membership but you will have the opportunity to develop your own knowledge of windsurfing across the 5 disciplines we run and influence the future direction of competitive windsurfing in the UK.

Please contact racing@ukwindsurfing.com or telephone 07889-161780 or make yourself known during the AGM.
