I am very pleased that this training is being offered. I am now an old man; for most of my life I have served on committees - it is a thankless task. Most members of most clubs (not just climbing clubs) claim that they are too busy to serve on the committee; but always seem to find the time to attend the AGM and insult, denigrate and rubbish the unpaid club officers who have given up their free time to try and help the club!
