The Keyworth Archers club committee is elected / re-elected each year at the Annual General meeting (AGM), held in February/March.
All committee positions become vacant at the AGM, so every position is up for grabs. We encourage all of our members to consider taking up a committee position at some point - the more members are willing to contibute to the running of the club, the better!
