SWVA Financial Director

Our current treasurer will be standing down at the end of the years and hence we are going to take this opportunity to create a new SWVA Financial Director position.

Each of our SWVA activities e.g. Tournaments, League, SWJGP, IRC Training etc are all responsible for providing their own set of accounts and for meeting budgets set by the committee.

The new role of the Financial Director will be to oversee our activities, we are an active region with 400 registered members each year plus another 1000 associate members / players throughout the region.
