It's time for another Venturer Committee election!

Thursday, 13 July 2017

Venturer Committee is a group of 15 Venturers (1 from each region and 6 lay members) that are nationally elected by Single Transferable Vote. Being part of Venturer Committee is a great oppurtunity to gain skills and knowledge for later life (both in and out of Woodcraft), work together to come up with new ways to develop Venturers and, additionally, meet many more people from wider Woodcraft. Also, this year’s and next year’s committee will be responsible for the planning of Venturer Camp 2019 along with the central coordinating team and will be part of making the next Venturer Camp a reality. 

Election for committee is open for those between the ages of 13 and 15 on the 1st of September 2017.

Please submit your application by using the google form below. Included in this are important details, such as your and your parents' contact information, as well as space to write a short manifesto (up to 200 words) answering the following questions:

  • Why do you want to be on Venturer Committee?
  • What would you bring to Venturer Committee?
  • What do you want to do on Venturer Committee?

After all the manifestos have been submitted, they will be sent out to groups to be voted on. Every Venturer gets to preferentially rank the manifestos on their voting card.

The deadline to submit your application is the evening of the 15th of September

If you have any questions, feel free to email either of the Venturer committee facilitators:
