What do they do for you?

Club Treasurer:
Every month the Treasurer checks the bank statements for Kapiti Pony Club (Raumati and Poplar Avenue) and then updates the grazing spreadsheet with amounts paid by all grazers.  Arranges for all grazers to have automatic payments, and actions penalty for late payments.  Records all income (grazing, subscriptions, sale of badges/books/uniforms) and expenditure (rent, rates, electricity, wormers, affiliation fees, rallies etc) - and each month compiles and presents the Treasurer's report to the Committee.  At the end of the financial year the accounts are audited by an accredited accountant.  The treasurer has to keep her/his finger on the pulse (so to speak) to ensure there is enough money in the bank account to pay the bills.  The tasks can be time consuming and takes about 4-6 hours per month.
 
Club Events Co-ordinator:
Kapiti Pony Club has weekly rallies (instructed lessons for our riders) so the Co-ordinator is responsible for planning and organising the activities and instructors every week. They manage the instruction to enable riders to gain their certificates over the course of the year. They also plan and organise other KPC events (gymkhanas, camps, clinics and holidays programmes, team activities such as games practices, treks or visits to other pony club or riding venues) and advise the Committee what is on. They have to have a really good relationship with other Pony Clubs and equine experts to provide visiting speakers, instructors etc. This year we have also had 'Introduction to Pony Club' classes after school which involved the Co-ordinator in planning and advertising.
