Treasurer: Manages CUGC's accounts and grant applications.
Equipment Officer: Ensures that our glider (CU) and its associated equipment are properly maintained, along with the relevant documentation. Great if you want to learn more about what goes into owning and maintaining a glider. Responsible for organising annual maintenance.

Vice President: Supports the president on special tasks. Helps organise trial flights. Can attend CGC committee meetings on the presidents behalf.
Social Secretary: Organises social events such as formals, pub meets and the annual dinner. Partly responsible for keeping Facebook page updated. A good role for someone who is unable to commit much time, but a really important role to be filled!
