Who on the current committee want’s to be dropped in it again? I can nominate people

I am happy to do the administrivia, but am also conscious of the fact that I’m not really larping ATM, and still don’t know when I will feel safe to do so. If people are happy to elect me despite that, then I’m happy to serve.

(I’ve kept my membership up-to-date, but things don’t seem to have been processed this month).

Similarly I’m not particularly active in the community, so it would be better for someone else to take over. I can keep things ticking over at a pinch though.

I encourage anyone who’s interested in being part of the committee to put up their (virtual) hand. The two general officer roles are a good way to see what’s involved in committee without committing to too much initially.

Do I just need to nominate the incumbents to force them to make dodge rolls?
