London City Singers’ CCC (Chorus Coordination Committee) gets a refresh every May. Each post on the CCC is filled on a two-year basis, with roles staggered to ensure a level of consistency from one year to the next. There are a few roles that need to be in place for each chorus; a team leader, finance lead and membership/secretary, and it’s required to have at least six in total to form the group. We’ve spent time working the most useful mix of roles to form our committee, and below explains each role, a little bit about what they do and who we have in place going forward.
Team Coordinator: responsible for overall management of the group
Mariane Lingley, replacing Helen Walledge
Team Secretary: compiles event handbooks, notes meeting actions and generates agendas
Leila Wong, replacing Liss Macklin
Membership Coordinator: tracks attendance, coordinates new starters and registers the chorus for Sweet Adelines International membership
Nat Faulkner, replacing Mariane Lingley
Fundraising Coordinator: leads on recommending fundraising methods and monitoring progress against set targets
Sal Rowberry, replacing Charl Asuit
Image Coordinator: determines what we wear for our events, ensuring we look fabulous dahling
Mea Wilson, replacing Linda Clayton
Simon Arnott (Music Director), Daisy Blench (Events Co-ordinator) and Lan O’Connor (Marketing Co-ordinator) remain in post, as well as Aurélie Gandour (Finance Co-ordinator) who took over from Sarah Palframan when she went on maternity leave late last year.
A big thank you to those who’ve supported the chorus over the past year working in the CCC, and special thanks to Aurélie for sourcing lovely presents for those leaving their roles.
Simon was also given a present, though he’s still on the CCC (I suppose he does do a lot for us…) Here’s him enjoying it 🙂
