VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

PCAA needs help urgently to ensure the committee membership remains above 8 members as required by the constitution. If the committee falls below 8 it cannot function or make any decisions about running the Association. The committee meets at most once per month for 2 hours.

 

We also need volunteers to help with organising PENFEST 2015. This year the festival was very successful but relied on too few volunteers. Without more help, the committee will have to restrict PENFEST 2015 to running the Annual Arts Exhibition only.

If you can help with either of these please contact Jackie McDonald at 01968675661.
