Introducing your new Treasurer

I am delighted to have taken on the role of Treasurer with effect 1st November 2015, and would like to thank Steve Yoxon for his excellent work and for leaving the club’s financial systems in very good shape. As I am now the Treasurer, expense claims should be sent to me, rather than Steve. You can send them to me in any of the following ways:

  • Electronically: simply scan your signed expense form and accompanying receipts, and email them to treasurer. This is the fastest way to get your expenses paid. If you do this, you do not need to follow up with a paper copy.
  • By mail to me at the postal address on the claim form.
  • By handing in an envelope to the bar staff to put in the safe. Please note this may result in a delay to payment depending on the frequency with which I am able to attend the club.

Expenses will be paid by bank transfer to your nominated account, subject to the expense claim being in order.

Forms are available in the Members Secure Area on the website: http://www.tudorsailing.org.uk/TudorSailing/04_membersecure/Exec_Documents/Upload/TSC%20Expenses%20claim%20form%20Nov%202015.pdf

There is also an excel file version in the Members Secure Area which you can download. If you have downloaded and saved a copy of a previous version of the form, please replace your stored copy with the new forms.

As a final act as Sailing Secretary, thank you to all who have supported me over the last few years – and please return any trophies to the bar so they can be engraved with the 2015 winners.

Janice Bell
