The PISC Committee is a group of volunteers who put themselves forward for the various positions, and are voted in place at the club’s AGM, held every April. Asking for nothing but your support, they meet monthly to consume coffee and biscuits, doing all the behind-the-scenes work that keeps the club running.
Being a self-help club means that any, and all assistance given is gratefully received no matter in what regard. The roles and responsibilities of each are outlined below.
