October Committee Elections – Wales & Welsh Borders Rider Rep, South East Area Rep
The PPORA Committee
The PPORA Committee is currently made up of a President (Richard Russell), Chair (Robert Killen), Vice Chair (John Sharp), Treasurer (Ian Prichard), 14 Area Representatives and 4 Rider Representatives. This autumn an additional Rider Representative (Wales and Welsh Borders) will join the team.
Members of the committee bring wide-ranging grassroots experience as owners, riders, keepers, officials and administrators in our sport.
Opinions may vary, and constructive debate is encouraged, but all share a passion for Pointing, and have a strong commitment to delivering the PPORA’s core aims of supporting, strengthening and representing Pointing’s grassroots community – the people who make our sport the diverse and engaging activity that it is.
Committee members attend quarterly meetings, and the AGM, currently all held at Stratford Racecourse, and each individual is the first point of contact for PPORA members from their area, encouraging and listening to grassroots opinions, providing balanced input to decision making, and communicating information about the PPORA and the sport in general back into their local community.
Area Representatives represent the whole pointing community, whilst Rider Representatives bring the perspective of their fellow riders to debates and decision making;
From time to time members may also be asked to join PPORA sub-committees, take part in PPORA events and activities such as PPORC Point to Point fixtures, and to represent the PPORA in other Pointing related activities such as external committees or working parties.
Committee Members are unpaid volunteers.
In October this year we will be holding the following elections:
PPORA South East Area Representative
Wales & Welsh Borders Rider Representative
The PPORA is keen to encourage nominations from across the eligible sections of our membership, so, if you are a member from these areas, please consider if you would like to become a PPORA Representative and/or who you would like to represent you.
