VI VICE-PRESIDENT


      It has become apparent that our President is far too busy to devote
sufficient time to the Club, and it would therefore be desirable to appoint a Vice-President. He or she would need to be a long-serving member of the Club and his/her duties would consist in chairing AGMs and familiarise
Committee members with the background and spirit of the Club. His/her role would be similar to that of a Monarch in dealing with the Government.


      You are all invited. to put forward names of members whom you
consider suitable for the post. You must not approach the persons whose
names you put forward for nominatlon. Your votes will be treated in
confidence.


      Please fill in tear-off slip and return to the Secretary by 15th July 1988 at, the latest.
