- Introduce and support potential new members
1.1 New and prospective new members will be directed to their voice rep as soon as possible.
The website directs enquiries to the Secretary and so the Secretary should ask the potential new member to contact both their Voice Rep and Liz Johnson (Membership Secretary) when attending their first rehearsal. The Secretary should tell the Voice Rep to expect the person to attend and to make contact.
The membership as a whole should be reminded that if they introduce a potential new member (or find someone at the beginning of a rehearsal who is looking lost!), they should put that person in touch with their Voice Rep.
1.2 Voice Rep takes care of the potential new member through their first few rehearsals and the voice test.
Voice Rep introduces potential new members to the section and ensures they know about the voice test and where to get copies of the pieces they can use (from John or Liz Johnson, probably). Voice Rep also tells potential new members:
- a) how rehearsals are organised, including coffee break arrangements etc.
- b) where to get music
- c) any important upcoming dates
- d) who are the current committee members
- Ongoing point of contact
The Voice Rep makes him/herself available to new and existing members to answer queries.
The Voice Rep should be aware of any issues that concern members of their section. They should decide with the person(s) concerned whether or not to raise the issue with the committee.
