Could you, or a fellow member you know, make a positive contribution to the running and development of the VTTA? Our National Secretary, Rachael Elliott, stepped down at the AGM to enable her to concentrate on her paralympic ambitions this year. This gives the opportunity to reconfigure some of the roles on the NEC and to invite new members to join us. Joy Payne has already agreed to join as our new Awards Secretary with Ian Greenstreet looking after all our road and track records. There are two areas where we need help at present:

  • Organising our NEC meetings and the National AGM – preparing agendas, minutes and helping with follow-up actions and correspondence
  • Managing information on our website/Facebook page – posting news items, updating membership, officials and competition information, and responding to enquiries from officials and members. This is not a technical role (Jon Fairclough will continue as IT Manager) but will look after the user administration facilities on the website and our Facebook page

All members of the NEC are involved in formulating policy proposals and development plans and have the opportunity to share their own experience and ideas. We need people who are good team players and communicators. The time commitment is flexible.

If you, or someone you know, might be interested, then please contact the Chairman. Andrew would be happy to contact any suggested nominations! You can contact him on 07767 835004 or email him at
