Welfare. A position of Welfare Officer is something a club should consider. This role could involve one or two members. The purpose of the role is to care for the welfare of club members in a private and confidential way. At times all of us have missed meetings but when members have long absences the Welfare officer can then contact members to speak with them to find out why they are not attending. This gives the members an opportunity to discuss any problem or issue that may be concerning them but have been unable to bring up. The problem could be to do with the club or it can be of a personal nature. The Welfare officer can then take it back to the Club President to discuss the best way to help resolve the problem or issue. By appointing someone to this role shows all members that your club is a caring club.
