Get Involved

For the last year, IOCA South has not had an Area Rep.  So, to reduce the amount that any one person needs to do, we have split the role up into 4.  Ian Cole has kindly agreed to run the Spinnaker training again next year.  Gillian Schonrock is taking on the role of Treasurer.  We are looking for 2 more people to join us:
  • Newsletters.   Create and send out newsletters, just like this one.
  • Events.  Co-Ordinate the Southern Traveller Series and Area Champs.  You don't need to run the events themselves, just co-ordinate with the event organisers and sponsor, sort out series prizes etc.
Neither role will take up much time, or require any special skills or experience.  Click here for more details.
