Club Governance

The Club is governed by a committee that meets approximately every six to eight weeks. We encourage our members to make regular contact with committee members and feedback their opinions, as we wish to be a Club that listens to its members. The following officers currently form our committee:

Club Constitution

Modern clubs are required to be well structured with transparent procedures.  Nomad Kayak Club operates around a constitution supported by policies, procedures, codes of conduct and risk assessments. Hard copies can be found at the Club’s base in the Rickmansworth Aquadrome. The Committee welcomes comments from its members on this documentation in order to continuously improve.
