Sergeant at Arms

This was the first Committee role I held, it was enjoyable and a good introduction to how the Committee works. The list below was written to remind me what the role entailed and enabled me to pass on the information to the person who replaced me the following year. The document I gave the new SAA was a lot more detailed than this, as it included all contact details and other information particular to our Club. The list below could be used with minor tweaks, by any SAA in any Club. I find for these types of documents lists of tasks helps me a great deal.

Confirm room booking
