District Secretary

Shirley Cross

I have been a  member of The Inner Wheel Club of Wellingborough for 8 years.  I am married with 3 sons, 3 daughter-in-laws and 6 grandchildren ranging in age from 5 to 20 years old. I  have held various Club Officer positions - International, Treasurer, President and currently Secretary. 
 In 2001 my husband and I took early retirement and moved to France for a few years before returning to help with our grandchildren.  Ten years later I am still involved in the 'school run'!  I enjoy gardening, cooking and entertaining and when time allows reading and of course Inner Wheel which has extended my circle of friends considerably.

Role of District Secretary 

As District Secretary you work very closely with the DC compiling agendas  for both the District  and  Executive meetings and you are responsible for the writing and distribution of the Minutes.  It is essential that you have access to and can use a computer  for writing minutes, updating spreadsheets and sending and receiving email correspondence from IIW , Association and Clubs.  It is important to keep Club Secretaries updated regularly with important information  received from IIW and Assoc. and update the club's information on the IIW and Assoc. databases. One of the biggest  tasks to do each year is  update the District Directory and organise the printing.

Although the role is quite demanding  it is probably the best role to do as you become  fully aware of how fantastic our organisation is both at Club level and Internationally. Why not give it a go.
