Bell Adviser (new officer for 2018)

The following District officers: President, Secretary, Ringing Master, Central Council Representative, Education Officer, Bell Restoration Fund Trustee, Bell Adviser and Diocesan Committee Representative are ex-officio members of the District committee. Additional committee members are elected at the ADM each year to bring the total number of committee members up to twelve, of which one should be a Junior member if possible. The actual number of committee members to be elected varies if one person fills two or more District officer roles.

Committee meetings and business meetings

Normally, there are three business meetings in a year, held as part of a District Monthly Practice. The the Annual District Meeting in January is one of the business meetings. There are two District Committee meetings a year, arranged at a time to suit the committee members, but in recent years they have been held after a District Practice.
