In 2019 the BUSA Committee went through a major restructure following concerns over the sustainability of the model being used. Over a year after this restructure we are very pleased to see the committee driving BUSA to achieve its goals and forecasting a very positive future for the association.
There are a minimum of four general committee meetings each year. Committee meeting are mixed between Skype meetings and face-to-face meetings.
Future meeting dates and venues will be announced at each committee meeting and confirmed in the committee meeting minutes, summaries of which can be found on the Documents Page.
Committee members are asked to write a short report prior to each committee meeting outlining actions achieved and areas they would like further support with. These reports are brought together as a committee report and circulated to the committee by the secretary.
This email address is the memberships main point of contact with the committee. The inbox is split into discipline specific folders, general membership enquiries and development. The main flow of emails come from the media coordinator requesting and receiving event reports and from University Clubs submitting development application forms.
This email address is run by the Secretary. The Secretary is BUSAs’ direct liaison with external bodies such as BUCS, the individual who sends whole membership emails and is the person on committee to direct all queries and concerns regarding event entry to. Consider the Secretary as the centre of the BUSA committee, who all administrative questions should be sent to.
The BUSA treasurer handles all financial enquiries, budgets and forms related to expenses and invoices.
The BUSA Team Racing Officer receives a large number of enquiries from university sailing clubs hosting the qualifiers, playoffs and finals of the BUCS Team Racing Championships. If you have a query which concerns the Team Racing Officer, use this email address.
The BUSA Technical Delegate team work closely with the Team Racing Officer. Although Technical Delegates are appointed for all our major disciplines, this email address directly relates to the Team Racing discipline. Any rule questions, queries regarding universities wanting to make team changes or questions regarding umpires and event logistics should be sent to the Technical Delegates.
