Warwickshire County Cricket Club has a vacancy on the Members’ Committee which the Club would like to fill at the 2024 AGM.
As a member of the Committee, you will have the opportunity to assist in shaping the direction of the Club and provide a voice for fellow members.
Specifically the role of the Members’ Committee is to:
- Ensure the views of Members are heard and considered by the Board, which is responsible for the governance of the Club and it’s business.
- Safeguard and promote the vision and culture of the Club.
- Protect, preserve and celebrate the history and tradition of the Club, the Edgbaston Stadium and the Edgbaston Foundation Sports Ground in Portland Road.
- Protect, maintain and, where appropriate, develop and improve Members’ rights, facilities and benefits.
Philip Astley-Morton is one of the most recent recruits to the Committee and describes his experience.
“I was privileged to be elected ahead of the 2023 season and have found the experience to be exceptionally rewarding. My fellow Committee Members are dedicated to addressing a wide-range of issues, from the day-to-day matters of how to improve the matchday experience for all visitors to Edgbaston, through to longer-term considerations to ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy a Club for which all members have a shared passion.
“Cricket has given me so much joy and it is an honour to be able to offer my assistance in return.”
Members of the Committee will be expected to observe and promote the Club Values, which are:
Passion – for the club, for our teams, for our venue and for the job that we do.
Respect – for our proud history and what we stand for as a club, how we treat our people, our customers and our community.
Innovation – we are always prepared to challenge ourselves, be creative, learn from others, embrace change and evolve.
Diversity – in our people, our views and our attitude towards our customers, our stakeholders and our community.
Excellence – in everything that we do.
